I got things a bit wrong as I wanted the field backGroundColor to change 
when
end-users selected a field, so, after going for a walk I changed things 
to the far simpler:

on mouseEnter
   set the backGroundColor of me to green
end mouseEnter

on mouseLeave
   set the backGroundColor of me to red\
end mouseLeave
