I am trying to create a textbox that the fill color will change according to input in a dropdown box named "DropdownColor" in has 5 choices red, green, blue, yellow and ****. in the texbox I added a validate javascript as follow:

{

var vcolor = event.value;

if (vcolor == "") this.getField('DropdownColor').fillColor = color.transparent

else if (vcolor == "yellow") this.getField('DropdownColor').fillColor = color.yellow

else if (vcolor == "blue") this.getField('DropdownColor').fillColor = color.blue

else if (vcolor == "red") this.getField('DropdownColor').fillColor = color.red

else if (vcolor == "green") this.getField('DropdownColor').fillColor = color.green

else this.getField('DropdownColor').fillColor = color.transparent;

}

the text box color never changes from the bluish default color.

What am I doing wrong?

Are you trying to change the text field or the drop-down field? Also, disable the fields highlighting to be able to see the actual fill color of your fields...
