    How To Get That Elusive Yellow Glow?

    username132
      I want to make a short animated logo in which part of the logo has a pulsating glow whilst a melodramatic sound plays in the background. I took the following code from the helpfile and tweeked it. What I'd like is a pulsating yellow glow... but all I get is some error I can't fix;


      [code]
      box_mc.filters = [new flash.filters.GlowFilter(color:0xF0F727)];
      var dir:Number = 2;
      box_mc.blur = 10;
      box_mc.onEnterFrame = function() {
      box_mc.blur += dir;
      if ((box_mc.blur >= 30) || (box_mc.blur <= 10)) {
      dir *= -1;
      }
      var filter_array:Array = box_mc.filters;
      filter_array[0].blurX = box_mc.blur;
      filter_array[0].blurY = box_mc.blur;
      box_mc.filters = filter_array;
      };
      [/code]

      Error:

      **Error** Scene=Scene 1, layer=Layer 1, frame=1:Line 1: ')' or ',' expected
      box_mc.filters = [new flash.filters.GlowFilter(color:0xF0F727)];

      You know, if yellow was the default glow colour, I wouldn't have this problem...
