Changing color of objects

I have tried to figure out a couple of different examples that I have found on flashkit.com about changing colors of objects but can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong.  If you download the following fla

as an example and when you take the "box" movie out of the scene and then place it back into the scene again from the library it looses its functionality.  If I could figure out why this is happening I could probably figure out how to make it change colors.  If you create an object and make it a particular color, will you be able to change it in actionscript or do you need to tell the objects color in actionscript from the beginning?  I hope I have made this understandable.  I have even checked the actions of the box movie before deleting it from the scene to test it and there are no actions.  Am I not looking in the right place?

Simple when you are taking the "box" movie out of the scene and then place it back into the scene. You are not giving "Mc" instance name to placed back "box" movie. If you give that, you can see it will change color again.

No you donot need to tell perticular color from bigning. You can assign color to movie at runtime like this

    MCColor = new Color("Mc");

this line creates new color for moive "box" having instace name "Mc".

    MCColor.setRGB(0xFFFFCC);

Here you can assign color by setRGB function.

I think this will help you out
