Default Changing items colors whithin tracks and keeping it clean

Hi everyone !

After I'm done singing, I usually need to sort out well sung parts from average or badly sung ones in my numerous tracks (around 20 or 30). In order to achieve that, I attribute new colours to some items, but it doesn't come out clean : The original item colour remains on selected items' backgrounds :

(orange and purple are the original colours, and green is the new colour)

I want to keep the colors and the theme as it is (Win98's style is pretty neat and appropriate for anything related to computers), but have a green background with a white curve on selected items.

Any idea how to manage that ? Action list, script or whatever ?
Thank you.

I use this action : "SWS: Set selected item(s) to custom color 1"

But it doesn't care about background, nor does it care about afterwards selection/unselection

actually I would need four actions :

"Set item to color 1 when item is selected"
"Set item to color 2 when item is unselected"
"Set item background to color 3 when item is selected"
"Set item background to color 4 when item is unselected"

But such actions apparently don't exist. Am I the only one who always changes items colors after all tracks are recorded ?

Would it be hard to write a script if the actions' list can't help ?

It is very easy to hack this by using the overlay images and alpha channel.
Each overlay image has an unselected
and selected variation.

No coding necessary.
