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.


In a painter

To set the fill color:

  • Select the desired color from the Fill 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:
