greetings Reek Majumder, , It looks like you want to "Change" this fill color in the browser javascript operations that receive the "JSON string" from the server, I guess it uses AJAX to get this "JSON string", it is possible to add the fillcolor property to the rect object in the javascript string, but it may be less difficult to to add the fillcolor property AFTER the "JSON string" is converted to a javascript Object in the code progression. Can you show us the AJAX "JSON string" retrieval  code in the javascript?
