Default Fade to Color- Transitional effects - 02-12-2009, 03:13 PM

I apologize if this has been asked/answered. I am going through the book "Alice in Action" and at the end of chapter 6 it discusses transitional effects, such as fade to black, where you set a "number" parameter so the user can choose how long the fade to black should take. One of the assignments asks that you do a similar thing, only fade to "someColor"... and this is where I am not sure what to do.
When I need to do anything asking a user to input a number, such as time or distance, I use a number parameter... but what kind of parameter do I use for a color choice? Not object- then the user needs to pick an object. Not a string, then the user has to type in a string... I am lost.
I hope this makes sense, and I'm sorry if it's a dumb question- I'm new to this, and can't seem to figure it out.
