Need help styling Flash Components

I am having difficulty finding info about custom styling Flash components (using AS 2.0).

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I want to set the background color of a text input field, and customize the border, and also set these properties to change on mouseover or click.

Can anyone help? Either, point me in the right direction, or help me figure out how to do this?

BTW, Flash documentation says you can set the bg color of a component with “backgroundColor” but I can’t get this to work on a text field…
