The most general, cross-browser, method of navigating any frame
(including an IFRAME) with scripts is to arrange that the frame has
both ID and NAME attributes that hold the same value and then access
its window/frame object through the – frames – collection of the
containing window/frame object, using that NAME/ID i.e.:-

[js]
window.frames[‘exampleFrameName’].location = ‘new URL’;

var my_square:Shape = new Shape();
my_square.graphics.beginFill(0x000000,1);
my_square.graphics.drawRect(10,10,100,100);
addChild(my_square);

var my_color:ColorTransform = new ColorTransform();
my_color.alphaMultiplier = 0.5;
my_color.blueOffset = 150;
my_color.greenOffset = 100;

Other Properties of the ColorTransform Class

In addition to the possibility of setting a color directly as an RGB code, you can also configure the following properties:
alphaMultiplier – Used to configure the transparency of the object – Accepts a decimal value between 0 and 1.
alphaOffset – Used to affect existing transparency of the object – Default value is zero, but can go up to 255 or down to -255.
blueMultiplier – Used to configure the blue channel value of the color – Accepts a decimal value between 0 and 1.
blueOffset – Used to affect existing blue channel value of the color – Default value is zero, but can go up to 255 or down to -255.
greenMultiplier – Used to configure the green channel value of the color – Accepts a decimal value between 0 and 1.
greenOffset – Used to affect existing green channel value of the color – Default value is zero, but can go up to 255 or down to -255.
redMultiplier – Used to configure the red channel value of the color – Accepts a decimal value between 0 and 1.
redOffset – Used to affect existing red channel value of the color – Default value is zero, but can go up to 255 or down to -255.
