Topic: button to show different colours, variable dependant.

Probably simple but this simpleton can't figure it.

I want the pad_menu button to show different colours depending on a variable
I first defined a new button
<define class="routinemenubutton">
<size width="12" height="12"/>
<off shape="circle" color="green" border_size="3" border="bordercolor2"/>
<over shape="circle" color="textoff2" border_size="3" border="bordercolor2"/>
<selected shape="circle" color="green" border_size="3" border="bordercolor2"/>

and I pointed the pads panels at that name, but I can't figure out how to make the off color change depending on a variable.
have I got it wrong, should I be using a visual?

Yes, the only way to get a "dynamic" color element is to use a visual.
So, you define the visual to handle the colors and then you draw it above (or behind) of the elements you want.
