FillColor property for PowerScript controls


Oval, Rectangle, RoundRectangle controls


The FillColor property defines the color used to fill the
control. When you are defining the background color in a painter,
some of the choices take their values from the current Windows color
scheme or from custom colors.

To add your own colors to the color drop-down list, select
Design>Custom Colors before displaying the Properties view.

    Color drop-down list on the General page of the control’s
    Properties view.

In scripts

The FillColor property takes a long value (-2 to 16,777,215)
that specifies the numerical value of the background color of windows
and other objects. The FillColor value is a combination of values
for the red, green, and blue components of the color. If you do
not know the long value for the color, choose Design>Custom
Colors to determine the red, green, and blue values and then call
the RGB function to specify the color in a script.

This example specifies yellow as the fill color for the RoundRectangle rr_display:
