Calling Sequence

GetColorNames()

GetColorNames(P)

Parameters

P

-

a palette object or the string with the name of a known palette

Options

• 

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

• 

all     : if not specified, only displayable colors will be returned (this is only really useful for palettes specified in non-RGB color spaces).

• 

aliases : if specified, aliases will be returned as well.  This option only applies when a palette is specified.

Description

• 

The GetColorNames procedure produces a list of the (translated) color strings recognized by ColorTools without specifying a palette. When new=true, only new color names are returned, while for new=false only old color names are returned. If unset, both sets of color names are returned.

• 

If a palette is specified all the displayable colors in that palette will be returned as a list.
