Hey Ramesh, remember that you can use ExternalInterface and js for many things… you can use it for getting and setting from the swf the swfobject color and other things…
That’s what i said, but as a poor coder i’m never taken into consideration… :P

Thanks P&K and Pez, adding a js function for site templates is fine as most buyers will just use the same html we inlude. But for banners and galleries if we add single more step to insert flash on pages, that will open another door for support requests, that’s why I afraid on that.

Hey fish, I like designs than coding! :)

Noted, I’ll lock the staff up in dimly lit rooms and force them to work 24/7 including any holidays or times of fun and celebrations. I’ll have Jeff break out the whip Indiana Jones style if they are seen having fun. Also, I’ll make sure they stay off their own companies forum :D :D

Misunderstanding.You can play anywhere but why you people decided to have fun on areas where something respected / valued (I mean the bundle). That’s all I wanted to convey.

Looks like staffs are working so hard to fool people! :D Please spend your time on something useful :| Couldn’t digest how much time you people wasting on forum fun.
I knew that was coming. Get some rest mate, we’re still human, eh? :)

All the tuts+ blogs has this bundle post. The cool forum habits started spreading into the possible buyer visitor end too. Consider the amount of real disappointments due to traffic! Not sure but sounds something not helpful to the future of real bundles. Ok, who am I to disturb your fun? keep going.

^ Yes, Looks like the only better way is getting the color value from xml settings while also setting the same color on html.

Regarding the CPU it is a different case, I planned about setting the display object property called “opaqueBackground” for some of the sprites in the movie. This actually reduces considerable processor usage (in my case, it helped around 10% reduction). That property is there from flash player 8.0 but I just came to know only lastweek!

btw, thanks everyone for the help! The strange thing is we are able to get/ set frame rate for player but not bg color! Not even possible to pick the stage bg color dynamically :P

But this is compile not runtime.
go up two posts above you

tsafi, the problem is not about compile time settings. Just wanted to get the color on runtime so that we can apply it on dynamic objects. We can ask the user to set bg color through xml and problem solved but the problem is most of buyers already familiar with setting bg through swfobject, they may not aware that they have to set it through xml. :|

Getting the stage color would be helpful to avoid transparent objects wherever applicable. This way some % of processor usage reduces. That’s why suddenly the stage bg color got much importance :D

The possible way looks like making a bitmap image by referencing stage then getting its color.

The bitmapdata draw method doesn’t gets bg color of stage. hmm…


If i’m not wrong the stage color is not something inside the swf, but setup in the html object directly, so i guess you should try with external interface to communicate with the browser. Could be an option?
Yes, but it would be hassle free if possible within actionscript.

Just need to get the empty stage color. No need to change.

Is there any way to get the background color of stage through action script? Already tried a few tricks and looks like it is impossible! :(
