# beamer change color current bullet

How do I change the color (to say red from blue) of bullet when that particular bullet is selected? Then when I move to the next bullet, bullet 2, bullet changes to red and bullet 1 is back to blue. I tried using alert but not working, I do not want to change the color nor background of the sentence, just the bullet's item color. Thank you Either change of color or moving from empty to solid

Use alert and let beamer do the work for you:

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Test}
\item First
\item Second
\item Third
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


With some help from beamer: change individual bullet color in itemize list,

\documentclass{beamer}
\newenvironment{Markenv}{\only{\setbeamercolor{local structure}{fg=red}}}{}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Test}
\begin{itemize}
\item<Mark@1> First
\item<Mark@2> Second
\item<Mark@3> Third
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}
\end{document}
