I have a tilelist that uses an itemrenderer. The itemrenderer has a hbox with six canvas's and inside each canvas is an image box. When a user click on one of the images I need the canvas background color to highlight or change color in some way. I just need a good example to get me going

Also, tTried to create a custom canvas and image but no luck.


Thanks
