I tried setting up things as pictured in the attached
image, but my ellipse won't change colour. If I open up a
viewer for it, I can see the colour assigned to
"StateTest's color" changing, but on the ellipse itself
nothing seems to be happening.

In order to write the scripts as shown, I created two
stateTest variables, one called "currentState", which is
assigned a script, and "delay", which is assigned a
number. What else do I need to do (or undo) to get the
ellipse to change colour?

(It also seemed odd to me that "stateTest's color" doesn't
appear in the category "color & border". To get at it, I
had to search on "color". Why is that?)
