hey man
As per my knowledge if you want to change the color of radiobutton is quiet not possible.But
i can give you same solution for this one.Just you need to create one movie which is same looks which you want.
which will be looks very simillar to radio button in any color you choose and for checking it and deselecting things
you can create checked radio button in second frame of same movie.

means one movie for first frame it will be unchecked and second frame it is checked one.
and you can write script for select  and deselect

In case if you  need the values for radiobutton can set variables's value to value of radio button is checked or not.

I hope this will solve the things.........

Waiting for comments..


Thanks

One way (setting color of all radiobuttons in movie) is this:

_global.styles.RadioButton.setStyle("color", "blue");

How to set the property on a single or group of Radiobuttons can be found here:

You can even use stylesheets in flash, but this is probably not what you are looking for.

Hi,

 I would like to throw you some light on why you say that Green button when you dragged a instance of the radio group. Flash MX 2004 UI is controlled by a concept called themes, something similar to Winamp and based on which theme you adopt in your project the color and theme changes. You can alter the default theme so that all your elements have a color scheme based on your requirment or you can take a base theme (defualt is halo) and customize it.

Thanks,
KP

Themes, true. To change the color of the theme, the following action script:
 _global.style.setStyle("themeColor", "haloOrange");

Default name is RadioButton, if you changed it then yes use the name you used.

What am I missing?

I dragged a button onto the stage, clicked the properties tab instead of the parameters tab in the properties panel and pulled the color selection down to "tint" and can assign it whatever color I want.  Does no combination of these setting override whatever default is setting yours to green?
