I don't use such kind of technologies, but you could try to set its style this way: style="color:#ff0000; background-color:#000040"  (quotes included) and so on.

here is example in VB.Net to do it in code-behind: myTextBox.Style.Add("background-color", "red")
in C# it is the same.

I couldn't find Style.Add on c# it is Attributes.Add. What about to change the forecolor?
Here is code in C#:
TextBox1.Style.Add("color","red"); - text in textbox (forecolor) will have such color
TextBox1.Style.Add("background-color","green");  - background of textbox will have such color
don't forget to put it into cs:
using System;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Web.UI.HtmlControls;
