I wonder if its possible to change the color of a pattern overlay in Photoshop?

I googled a lot but couldn't find anything useful.

So I have a layer with pattern overlay, but I also want to use color overlay so I can set a color for the pattern.

Thanks, and what about gradient overlay, set it to "color" also? That doesn't seem to work. – Nimbuz Jan 20 '13 at 11:22
you took to much time to respond! anyways what exactly you want to do? if you are having gradient overlay selected make sure color is not selected, and set it to like "multipyl or overlay" – Jack Jan 21 '13 at 5:39
