    how to set textbox style using .setStyle()

    MediaMan5335
      I want to make it so that when a submit button is clicked, if an input textbox is blank, it will return a message in RED text. But if they have entered a value for it to return a message in the input box with GREEN text. So far this is my code, but it doesn't change the color of the text:

      check_btn.onPress = function() {
      for (i=1; i<9; i++) {
      if (_root["input"+i] != "") {
      _root["input"+i].setStyle("fontColor", 0x00FF00);
      _root["input"+i] = _root["answ_"+i];
      }
      if (_root["input"+i] == "") {
      _root["input"+i].setStyle("fontColor", 0xFF0000);
      _root["input"+i] = "Please type an answer here.";
      }
      }
      };
      I would apreciate any suggestion. Text Text Text Text
