Background Color

How do I set the background color of a cell?

I thought this would work, but the compiler is telling me the field is read only and cannot be assigned.

myWs.Cells[1, 1].Style.Fill.BackgroundColor.Rgb =

"FFFF00" ;

myWs.Cells[1, 1].Style.Fill.PatternType = OfficeOpenXml.Style.ExcelFillStyle.Solid;
myWs.Cells[1, 1].Style.Fill.BackgroundColor.SetColor(Color.LightGray);
