mergAnswerColor - hex only? SOLVED

Post by quailcreek » Wed Jan 17, 2018 5:11 am

Hi,
I'm coming up to the end of a couple of projects so I started looking more closely at mergAnswerColor. I can get it to work but it will only out-put colors in hex. To set the backgroundColor of say a grc, you need the RGB or the color name. I looked on the forum and found ways to convert RGB to the color name and how to convert color name to RGB but nothing on converting from hex to RGB. Does anybody have a method for doing this? Would be nice if Monte could give use a choice of out-puts... Monte... huh Monte?

You can use hexadecimal for colors, just be sure to put the hash sign before the hex.

Thank you, Jacqueline. That crossed my mind but I thought it couldn’t be that simple. Duh...
