    I've made a calculator in flash cs5. The display part of my calculator is a textbox that displays the answers, numbers etc and a white movie clip as a rectangle behind the textbox to make it look like a screen. I want the screen (movie clip) to change to green when the answer is a valid number but red for an error (NaN, e.g when you put two decimal places in a single number.) My problem is that it turns green no matter what the answer is.

    My code is as follows on the equals button:

    Code:
     
    on(press, keyPress "<Enter>")
    {
       calculate();
    }
     
    on(release)
    {
     if(display.output=Number)
      {
      myColor = new Color(displayback);
      myColor.setRGB(0x66FF99);
      }
     
     else if(display.output=NaN)
         {
       myColor.setRGB(0xFF0000);
      }
    }
    

    I am currently not very good at actionscript so any help would be appriciated.
