HexToString(hex)

Parameters

hex

-

:string: : hex code for color, can be "#rrggbb" or "rrggbb"

Options

• 

new : boolean; indicates whether to restrict to new color names (true), old color names (false), or no restriction (the default)

• 

default : string; default value to return when there is no match

Description

• 

The HexToString procedure converts from a hex color value to a translated color name (based upon the current locale in the Maplets context).

• 

The new option acts as follows:

new=true: only search new color names

new=false: only search old color names

default (option new not specified): search both new and old color names

• 

If a default value is provided, then that is returned when no match is found, otherwise an error occurs.
