Foreground color of non-editable numeric text field is constant?

I have a numeric text field that is just a calculation of two other text fields, so I don’t want it to be editable. It’s part of a window showing financial information, do want it to be red if it’s a number less than 0, or black otherwise.

But when I make it not editable, no matter what the text is just the grayed out color. Is there a to format the foreground color of non-editable numeric text fields? Using Ignition 8.0.12.

If you don’t plan on allowing editing, you should be able to switch it to a numeric label instead and bind the color to its value.
