Hexadecimal color values (also called hex values) are comprised of a six-digit alphanumeric combination that represents a specific color that Adobe Flash Player, computer monitors, and web browsers can translate and display. For example,
FFFFFF specifies the color white as a hexadecimal value, and
000000 specifies black. The six-digit number is a combination of the letters A–F and the numbers 0–9 (it is, in fact, a base-16 number).
The Color panel (Window > Color) in Adobe Flash Professional enables you to modify the color palette of a FLA file and change the color of strokes and fills. To change the hexadecimal value in the Color panel, you can click the color chip and choose a color from the swatch panel that appears, or else enter the hexadecimal value by entering its corresponding six-digit alphanumeric value in the field.
To reset the color of the Stage, click the color chip next to Stage in the Property inspector. To copy the hexadecimal value from one object and apply it to another object, use the Eyedropper tool.
To learn more about hexadecimal color values, see the section titled The Color panel in the Flash documentation.
