Color functions

These functions can be used in expressions associated with setting and evaluating the color properties of chart objects, as well as in data load scripts.

Use the drop-down on each function to see a brief description and the syntax of each function. Click the function name in the syntax description for further details.

## Pre-defined color functions

The following functions can be used in expressions for pre-defined colors. Each function returns an RGB color representation.

Optionally a parameter for alpha factor can be given, in which case an ARGB color representation is returned. An alpha factor of 0 corresponds to full transparency, and an alpha factor of 255 corresponds to full opacity. If a value for alpha is not entered, it is assumed to be 255.
