How can I change my background color?

This should be an easy thing to do, but I can't recreate what the book says.

My manual says "to make a background behind the graphic and the text, instead of on top which covers everything, you must create a new layer in Illustrator." You can do this, what else, the window layers. Click the button to create a new layer. By default, the layer will be placed on top, but you want it on the bottom, then click and drag the new layer under Layer 1, as shown in Figure 4-45. Then draw a rectangle by using the Rectangle tool. Click on draw to make it the size that you want, and then change the color via the color window. »

I can create the new layer, but when I try to draw the rectangle and change color, nothing is actually happening. It creates the layer but the layer doesn't change color.

you are not changing the color of the layer (which is not really something), you make an object with a filling that will serve as your background. So what's going wrong here? the rectangle tool does nothing? or you can create a rectangle but can not change its fill?

    Button style is predefined according to me. Dark theme can be activated in the bar - descriptor.xml, but it is applied to the application on a global scale and affect all other controls as well.

    You can use a container with background image instead of a button. Example code:
