Question Change background color of hostname display componat of XDM

I've been changing the colors of XDM to ones that I like better, and have gotten stumped on how to change the background color of the top bar that reports the hostname.

I've been able to change the foreground color (text) of that part, however when I try to change the background color (with /etc/X11/xdm/Xresources) nothing happens. There are resources for the main xdm background color, perhaps there is a confluct?

Is it possible to change the background color of the host name display
