hi, is there anyway to change the background colour of a flash site with actionscript. like when you press a button?
so, in this case http://www.cartoonfox.hostrocket.com/cartoonfox-v4.html when you press a button, the WHOLE of the red changes to what ever colour?
You can change the colour of a movieclip by using the Color object.
yourColor = new Color(yourmc);
//where 000000 is your hex colour value
// you can also use setTransform for more control:
// ra is the amount of red on a scale of 100, ba is the same for blue, ga the same for green and aa the same for alpha

hmmm, is there no other way than to use a movieclip? other wise i’ll have to make the movieclip the perfect size to prevent scrolling, but different browsers have slightly different sizes (due to browser tool bars etc)
And you can also change the background color of the HTML document through Java****Script:
var hex = 0xFFFFFF;
hey cool, thanks
except it doesnt change the colour right
i put FF33CC which is a pink, but it came out darkish green!!
It’s working fine here … don’t forget to use 0xFF33CC as hex value.
yeah i had 0xFF33CC, and it comes up as a darkish green, strange
That’s weird - have you got it online somewhere so we can check it out ?
don’t forget, there are only 216 safe web colors.
all the others may not look the same on Windows as they do on other Operating Systems…
FF33CC is a web safe colour. and i’m using a mac, IE.
i’ll put it online and see what happens.
here we go. press the pink text button.
now i need to figure out how to change the swf bg colour… and help?
you’ll have to use a mc, then change that…
unless you want to use transparent bg in Flash via HTML… only works in Macs w/player 7 installed, Windows Netscape/Mozilla w/player 7, and of course, all windows IE since IE4…
just had this issue with a site, and the client is on Mac OS9 AOL…
hmmm, i have flash player 7, but i can only publish in 6. i tried changing the publish settings for html to transparent window, but nothing changed when i tested it.
maybe i should not bother.
either use an HTML editor (dreamweaver, etc) or ask someone to write it for you…
I think the saturation #'s are pretty hi on the player 7…
