Alpha Anywhere provides extremely fine control over colors when you set the properties of object on layouts, or when you specify a color in an Xdialog form.
Hue: 0 - 360
Luminosity: 0 - 100
Saturation: 0 - 100
Red: 0 - 255
Green: 0 - 255
Blue: 0 - 255
Specifying a Color
You can specify a color in two ways. If the color is a named color, you can do this.
If there is no named color available, you can specify the color's RGB values.
Specifying a Relative Color
Given a color, you can modify one or more of its values. The syntaxes are (remove all spaces in the final version):
+|-Symbol Amount Color_Name +|-Symbol Amount RGB_Value
Symbol is a value from the table above. Amount is a value within the appropriate value range. For example, reduce the luminosity of "Red" by 10.
Increase the hue of color "#60,180,30" by 25.
Specifying an Absolute Color
Given a color, you can set one or more of its values. The default color is "Black", which is "#0,0,0". The syntaxes are (remove all spaces in the final version):
##Symbol Amount [ +Symbol Amount [ +Symbol Amount [ +Color_Name ]]] ##Symbol Amount [ +Symbol Amount [ +Symbol Amount [ +RGB_Value ]]]
For example, start with the color "Red" and set its blue component to 50 and green component to 25.
Starting with the default color "Black", define the color that we call "Blue" by setting its hue to 240, luminosity to 50, and saturation to 100.
Combining Relative and Absolute Syntaxes
This example takes "Light Blue" and decreases the hue by 25 and sets the luminosity to 75.
