The Flash documentation seems to indicate that the RGB portion of the Info Panel shows the RGB qualities of the point under the mouse curser, but I never see anything here, as if the feasture weren't turned on.

Does anyone know what might be going on?

Thanks,

That's odd.

It should tell you the colour of any lines, fills or individual pixels in bitmap images. It wont tell you the colour of the stage or any empty areas. I don't think you can turn this off - you might want to reinstall Flash.

Here's an example:  http://www.4shared.com/file/6956993/c5a65a05/glowingEmber.html

Let's see if it works on your system.  When I run the mouse over the black and radial-colored "coals" I see no data for RGB in the Info panel.  Selecting the items doesn't help.

Yup, looks like the info panel doesn't like those new fangled "drawing objects", I never noticed that before.  If you break them apart it comes back to life again.

It also doesn't like the gradient fill and only reports a single value which is a bit useless IMO - this isn't just your file I made a test file which did the same.

Ok, thanks for looking at it. I guess we'll just have to live with it.
