Help With Changing Tints with ActionScript?

I need to know if it’s possible, and if so, how, to change the tint of an object using actionscript. For instance, if one was to select a specific button, the actionscript in that button would tell the object, in this case the background, to change its tint.

Thanks in advance.

Heh, thanks. Guess I didn’t look in the right place at the site.
