Color (Statement)



Sets the current drawing color to colorname or to an ARGB value where ( (a * 256 + r) * 256 + b) * 256 + g. If a single color is specified both the pen and the brush will be set to the same color.

When drawing solid shapes (Chord,Circle,Pie,Poly,Rect, and Stamp) the border of the shape will be drawn with the pen color and the shape itself will be filled with the brush color. A brush color of CLEAR is used to not fill a closed shape.

If the current pen and brush are both set to CLEAR the pixels or shapes drawn will clear the pixels of the graphics output area and make them transparent. This is especially useful when creating sprites using the Spriteslice command.
