Now that I know how to change the background colour using script, I now 
want to allow the user to choose the colour using a colour picker.

I've added a colour picker to my entry page (mainPage.addColourPicker), 
added a 'selectColour' interaction to the same page and to this I've added 
an event that listens for the colourChange event to be broadcast by the 
mainPage icon. The script attached to this event should then set the fill 
colour  (rootIcon.beginFill(mainPage.colourPicker.colour,100)) before 
drawing the background rectangle.

Two problems:-

Firstly the colourChange event does not appear to be being broadcast by 
mainPage - or if it is, my event is not picking it up. How should this 
intyeraction be setup?

Secondly, I don't appear to have the correct syntax for getting the new 
colour from the colour picker - how do I do this?

Any help appreciated!
