Default change the color of selected text dynamically

Hallo everyone,

I want to change dynamically the text color when I mark and select a text. The fact is:

I am having a procedure which changes the text color to red if there is an error such as:

if (minute1 == 0) {
     result.text = "Error. Not applicable";
     result.textColor = 0xBE0C26;

This is just a piece of code from my calculator whichconverts the values between different units such as minute second day hour etc.

clearAll() function sets the default values. If I define the default text value under my clearAll function it changes the error message's color to the default text value. That's why I can't define its default color value under clearAll. But the text color remains as red when I try to enter another value. That's why I need such a function which turns the selected text color to its default value. I tried to use the

 formStyleFormat.textSelected = 0xffffff;

function but it didn't help me. Can anyone help me?

To change the font colors try this, you need to set up a TextFormat() first, then call it later where ever you need it changed.

var DefaultTxt = new TextFormat();
DefaultTxt = 0xBE0C26;

var ErrorTxt = new TextFormat();
ErrorTxt.color = 0xffffff;
