I created a container field "cont1" to repeat twice and it shows up on the layout as cont[1] and cont, looks like 2 boxes now. However, when I click to fill the field with a color BOTH boxes fill with the same color. How do I get cont[1] as red and cont as green? I want to use these as red and green "lights" based on the content of another field. A sort of "pass / "fail" indicator.
thx experts...

You need to use 2 container fields and set each of them individually. With a Repeat you are still dealing with the same field. Therefore changes made will affect the whole field.
