This seems like it should be simple but for some reason I can not get it to work. I've tried a million different things with no success. All I want to do is set the color of the text in a NSPopUpButtonCell. One of my columns in an a subclass of NSTableView contains popup menus. Everything is working great so I move on to the last issue (I hope). I need to be able to set the color of the menu items based on certain criteria. But before I got to that I just tried to change the color from black to anything else. It just doesn't work. Below is the relevant code from my project. I don't usually post this much code but this is killing me and I was hoping someone might be able to spot something I am doing wrong and set me straight. Thanks in advance for any help. Basically, I just have subclasses of NSTableView, NSPopupButtonCell and NSTableColumn. I've stripped out all the junk not relevent to this problem.
