    problem with sampling colors in FW CS3

      I am attempting to sample the most intense blue color within a gradient blue band -- I just want to find out the hex number so I can duplicate the color. According to Adobe instructions, I have selected the fill tool, selected the gradient, selected the eyedropper tool, clicked on the color, and nothing happens. I have also tried selecting the gradient, clicking on the gradient in the fill box of the tool bar, and clicking on the appropriate color box in the pop-up panel. No matter where I move the eyedropper tool within the flat-toned color box, I get a different reading, sometimes even black. This stays true no matter if I choose the 1 px or 3 px sampler. What am I doing wrong? This should be a simple 1-second effort that has cost me much time. Thanks for your help --
