    Cannot change datagrid item background colour dynamically

    WeWeaveDean
      Hello, I am trying to change the background colour of a data grid item dynamically.
      I am using a component for each item with the item_renderer function

      then in the component this is the line i am having trouble with
      <mx:Canvas width="100%" height="100%" id="item_bg" backgroundColor="{data.status_colour}">

      data.status_colour is definatly set and has a hex value, #FF99CC for example

      i tried
      <mx:Canvas width="100%" height="100%" id="item_bg" creationComplete="item_bg.setStyle("backgroundColour","{data.status_colour}")">

      it did put colours on the but they were all in the wrong place, so a completed item should be green but it is coming up with red (failed)

      any ideas??

      thanks
