I don't think that will work. Use label instead

You can't change the color of diabled text box.
However, you have two ways to get around.

1. Put a frame, set the borderStyle to none, and backcolor to the same as the form,  put your textbox inside the frame, enable/disable the frame instead of the textbox.

or
2, Lock/unlock the textbox instead of enable/disable it.

This alternate way works.
I am just locking the Text item  instead of adding an additional frame in the form.

Thanks
