Javascript--setting current highlighter color

I would like change the current default highlighter color programatically with javascript. The manual equivalent would be selecting the highlighter tool then using the highlighter tool properties bar to change the color so that my next highlight will be in the newly selected color.

 

I'd like to change the color PRIOR to making a highlight (as opposed to making a highlight and then changing the color of that last made highlight). Is this possible?

 

I use color coded highlighting extensively and the inability to rapidly switch between ~6 colors makes it very difficult to use Acrobat as my primary PDF reading application.

 

Thank you in advance.
