Setting an expression colour in a light fill layer

Hi, I'm having trouble changing the colour of a light layer in a logo reveal template.

When I change the  colour from red to green it keeps defaulting to red.

I think it is to do with the expression which is comp("Main").layer("ColorControl").effect("Light")("Color").

I've tried various commands such as comp("Main").layer("ColorControl").effect("Light")("Color")("fillColor#7B8E31")  and "ColorControl#7B8E31")  but keep getting error warnings.

Could someone help? Thanks very much!

Since you've got the Hex Code, use the hexToRGB Expression Function - 

hexToRgb("#7B8E31")

Use the `hexToRgb` function like this: `comp("Main").layer("ColorControl").effect("Light")("Color").setValue(hexToRgb("#7B8E31"))`.

full script looked liked this: comp("Main").layer("ColorControl").effect("Light")("Color").setValue(hexToRgb("#7B8E31")

also tried with the 2 brackets.

Ensure you are using the correct syntax by setting the color property directly, like this: `comp("Main").layer("ColorControl").effect("Light")("Color").setValue([0.482, 0.557, 0.192])` for a green color.

comp("Main").layer("ColorControl").effect("Light")("Color")

should be enough, try to check the name of the composition, the layer name and the effect name in the expression, there might be an issue with capital letters.
