the edit field's background is the window's background,
so you need to change the window's background color:
     1)  before you create the edit field, and
     2)  on refresh events.

if you wanted ef#1 background to be red,
ef#2 to be green, and ef#3 to be blue,
you just cycle through them respectively.
set to red, re-do #1, green #2, blue, #3, 
and then back to overall window background color.

if you have a ppat background, 
you need to cancel that out first
then specify the background color,
and then re-specify the ppat background.

no more time now, so let me know if you need more help.
