The setting specified here supersedes, for this data column, the setting set in this data column's owner data browser. Although the button and caption area can be specified, the method refers only to this column. As a rule, initial settings are picked up from the standard settings of the environment—under Windows, colors are set in the Control Panel. Note that while it is possible to alter the color of the caption and column caption areas, this is not recommended when a 3-dimensional, sculpted, "button look" is used—end users can be confused if buttons don't look like buttons.
To set the background of the text area yellow and column caption blue:
1oDataColumn:ChangeBackground(Brush{Color{COLORYELLOW}},    GBLTEXT)
