    change symbol background color

      Hello,

       

      Can you set the properties of a symbol by doing this hot_btn2.backgroundColor ="#FF9900"?

       

      or are symbols created using a static string?

       

      this.shape_1.graphics.f("#00FFFF").s().p("AhSBTQgjgiAAgxQAAgvAjgjQAigjAwABQAwgBAjAjQAjAjgB AvQABAxgjAiQgjAjgwAAQgwAAgigjg");

       

      It would be nice if I could the name of the symbol.

       

      Thank you,

       

      Charles

          it's not efficient but you can use the filters property of you symbol to assign a color filter:

           

          this.hot_btn2.filters=[new createjs.ColorFilter(0,0,0,1,0,0,255,0)];

          this.hot_btn2.cache(0,0,this_etc.nominalBounds.width,this_etc.nominalBounds.height);

           

          better would be to create a movieclip button and use multiple frames on its timeline to display the various colors you want and use gotoAndStop in your code to control which frame/color is displayed.
