Arrays must contain identical elements.  If those elements are clusters its not an issue but lets simplify your array to an array of booleans for clarity.  but each element in an array most have the same properties.  You will not be able to change the Colors4[] property on one element of the array although you can set the Colors4[]property on ALL elements of the array. 


In your case- it sounds like you need a control type that can have multiple values (color box) to display one of several colors (Green=good ser, Yellow = No ser, Red = Bad ser, ect.) and not a boolean that has exactly 2 possible values.  Here's a custom button I got as a gift a while back.  See if it helps
