InkEdit, InkPicture controls


A drawing attribute that specifies the current ink color. The default color is black.


In a painter

To specify a color for the ink drawn in an InkEdit or InkPicture control:

  • Select a color from the InkColor drop-down list on the Ink page in the Properties view.

In scripts

The InkColor property takes a long value.

This example sets the InkColor property to the long value for magenta for the control ip_1:

ip_1.InkColor = 16711935

This example in the Moved event of a trackbar control sets the InkColor property using the RGB function and the scroll position selected by the user:

ip_1.InkColor = RGB(scrollpos/4, scrollpos/16, scrollpos/64)
