Default Referencing controls

Hi, in a List view I want a particular control (textbox) to have a red background color if it has a certain value. I have tried the following:

Click on the textbox then click the Data icon in the context sensitive controls that appear. I can then see that the name of the control is First_NameTextBox. I then click anywhere on the List view and click the Actions icon in the context controls that appear to the right of the view. I select "On Current". I then create two steps that should be executed whenever a new record is activated:

If [First_NameTextBox] = "somevalue" Then
        Control Name     [First_NameTextBox]
        Property            BackColor
        Value                #FF0000
End If
However, this turns the textbox red no matter what the value in First_NameTextBox is. How do I reference the CURRENT value of the textbox?
