    Can't change backgroundColor in Text component?

    Dean Schulze

      I have multi-line text I want to display on a colored background.  The Text component apparently has no way to change its background color.  According to the Flex 4 docs there is no style for backgroundColor and calling setStyle("backgroundColor", "...") has no effect.

       

      I checked the Spark TextArea, and it also doesn't seem to have any way to change background color.

       

      What is the story with background color with Text and TextArea?

       

      Thanks.
