This property sets or returns the value of the blue channel of an RGB colour. The value may be set with a number (0–255) or hex number (#00–#ff). The return value (if coerced to a string or number) is always a number, i.e. 255 and not #ff. By comparison the rgb() operator requires that the values for all three colour channels be set. Examples:

$MyColor.blue = 255; 

$MyColor.blue = "#ff"; 

$MyOtherColor.green = $MyColor.blue; (value of $MyOtherColor green channel is that of $MyColor blue channel)

$MyNumber = $MyColor.blue;  (gives 255)

$MyString = $MyColor.blue;  (gives "255")
