LegacyColorValue

Specifies the color designation scheme to be used for interpretation of numerical color values.

Usage

[LegacyColorValue = LogicalValue]

Where:

LogicalValue - a true/false value; True = Enable; False = Disable.
  • If the attribute is set to False, or not present in the study's code, the RGB (new) 16M color scheme will be used.
  • If LegacyColorValue the attribute is set to True, the legacy (old) 16-bit, 16-color scheme will be used.

Notes

  • When a color name is converted to a numerical color value, the specified scheme will be followed.
  • To ensure compatibility, the attribute [LegacyColorValue = True] is inserted automatically when older versions, prior to v8.1, of EasyLanguage studies are imported.

Examples

Enable legacy color value interpretation:

[LegacyColorValue = True];

Create a Green color plot using the legacy color scheme:

[LegacyColorValue = True]; 
 
Plot1(Open); 
SetPlotColor(1,4);

Create a Green color plot using the RGB color scheme:

[LegacyColorValue = False]; 
 
Plot1(Open); 
SetPlotColor(1,65280);

Assign a value, representing the color Green under the legacy color scheme, to Value1 (Value1 will be assigned a value of 4):

[LegacyColorValue = True]; 
 
Value1 = Green;

Assign a value, representing the color Green under the RGB color scheme, to Value1 (Value1 will be assigned a value of 65280):

[LegacyColorValue = False]; 
 
Value1 = Green;
