you can use

SET_ITEM_PROPERTY
  (item_name  VARCHAR2,
   property   NUMBER,
   value      VARCHAR2);

to set the visual attributes, say if the name of the item is 'xyx' then u need to write the following code

set_item_property('xyz',FOREGROUND_COLOR, 'GRAY');

the other alternate to this - is that you can set these properties during design-time. For more help you can check 'set_item_property' in help.

Hope this helps you.

DECLARE
  it_id Item;
BEGIN
  it_id := Find_Item('CONTROL.CHECK_BOX);  
  Set_Item_INSTANCE_Property(it_id,1,VISUAL_ATTRIBUTE,'TEXT_ITEM');
 
END;

Here 1 is the number of the current record and TEXT_ITEM is the name of a visual attribute where you define the foreground and background color.

You can use the system variable to figure out the number of the current record.

SYSTEM.CURSOR_RECORD represents the number of the record where the cursor is located.  This number represents the record's current physical order in the block's list of records. The value is always a character string.

So use TO_NUMBER(:SYSTEM.CURSOR_RECORD) to gigure out the number of the current record.
