Programatically change header background not css

I would need to change a specific header's background color. I've seen some great examples but none that quite tell me what I need to do.

I try
obj.getHeaderTemplate().getContent("box").setStyle("background", "red");
or obj.getHeaderTemplate().setStyle("backgroundColor", "red");
but not working.

Can anyone help ?

You should specify the column index -

var header = obj.getHeaderTemplate(1); // column-1
header.getContent("box").setStyle("background", "red");

I try to specify the column index, but not working!! Why??
My Code:

    <title>ActiveWidgets Grid :: Examples</title>
    <style> body, html {margin:0px; padding: 0px; overflow: hidden;} </style>

    <link href="../../runtime/styles/xp/aw.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" ></link>
    <script src="../../runtime/lib/aw.js"></script>
        var myData = [
            ["MSFT","Microsoft Corporation", "314,571.156", "32,187.000", "55000"]];
        var myColumns = [
            "Ticker", "Company Name", "Market Cap.", "$ Sales", "Employees"
    var obj = new AW.UI.Grid;

    var str = new AW.Formats.String;
    var num = new AW.Formats.Number;

    obj.setCellFormat([str, str, num, num, num]);



    obj.setSelectorText(function(i){return this.getRowPosition(i)+1});



    obj.onCellClicked = function(event, col, row){window.status = this.getCellText(col, row)};

var header = obj.getHeaderTemplate(1); // column-1
header.getContent("box").setStyle("background", "red");

Can you explain what is wrong with this code? It does change the header color to red. Are you trying to do something else?

I upgraded aw.js from 2.01 to 2.02 version, that's working. Why?

There was a bug in 2.0.1 where changes on the inner content were not saved.
