$COLOR - QB64Official/qb64 Wiki

$COLOR is a metacommand that adds named color CONST in a program.

Syntax

$COLOR:{0|32}

Description

  • $COLOR:0 adds CONST for colors 0-15. The actual constant names can be found in the file source/utilities/color0.bi.
  • $COLOR:32 adds CONST for 32-bit colors, similar to HTML color names. The actual constant names can be found in the file source/utilities/color32.bi.
  • $COLOR is a shorthand to manually using $INCLUDE pointing to the files listed above.
  • NOTE: When using $NOPREFIX, the color constants change to C_ (ex: Blue becomes C_Blue).

Example(s)

Adding named color constants for 32-bit modes:
