This chart shows a list of colors and, for each color, three other colors based on the original color but with higher light values.You can use this chart to set up color schemes.This chart lists the colors from the color codes chartthat have some saturation. (Grey, white, and black have no saturation.)In this chart, the first column lists the name of the color.The second column lists the color's hue in degrees of the color circle with 0 = red; 120 = green; 240 = blue.The next two columns are the hexadecimal red, green, and blue code for the color and a swatchbased on this hex code (just as shown on the color codes chart.)The next three pairs of columns show swatches of color based on the original value, but with increasing lightbased on a step size.The step size of increasing light is meant to give three lighter swatches of the original value.These swatches are calculated to be equidistantfrom the original light value to a light value of 95%. The value 95% was chosen to be the lightest swatchshown because if you get more above 95% in lightness, you get very light colors that are near white (you'll seein the chart that the upper 95% light value in the right-most column is close to the same value for colors of similar hue.)For colors over 95% in lightness for their original value, an upper limit of 99% was used.This chart can be used directly to choose a color or as a way to set up color schemes.You can use different formats of this same information.(To vote for this version, share this link: )expanded version / compact version
If you're familiar with Access 2007 or later you might understand what I'm trying to get at. In the properties window for a color on the form say \"fore color\" instead of a number you get a text value such as \"Text, lighter 50%\" that all fine and well and you can type that into the properties window just fine, but if you want to use vba you cannot just type me.Controlname.forecolor = \"Text, lighter 50%\" if I could I can change the default from me.controlname.forecolor = \"text 1\" and then return it to me.controlname.forecolor = \"text, lighter 50%\" when finished highlighting for whatever reason. All this would keep the colors within the range of colors for the user's selected theme. However the controls don't accept a string as their values even though in the properties window a string is what is present. This is what I'm trying to do - it would be great if Microsoft would provide a built in function to assign the numeric value to one of these text descriptions that are allowed in the properties window, but not via vba. - but they don't - so because of that a UDF could be the answer with the list that Chris found - it's a start to be able to change colors within the theme that the user selected. I'm the first one in these forums to reply to others with similar comments as yours, who try to mess with the user's abilities to customize their windows as they see fit - I don't want to change their theme - I only want to highlight specific controls for specific reasons - WITHOUT changing their chosen theme colors.
Not exactly, but it did give me an idea. I could have an hidden form that has text controls on it with the colors that I want to use throughout my program. When I want to change to a specific color, I just grab the color off of one of the textboxes on that form... however that still doesn't address the many morphs of that color such as \"lighter 20%\", \"darker 30%\" etc.
Note: By default, fill colors are opaque (other background formatting does not show through). A transparency setting of 100% makes the fill color invisible, while the default value for an opaque color is 0%.
To clear the table fill color, click inside the table to activate it, then on the Table Design tab, in the Table Styles group, click the Shading button to open the dropdown list, then from the Table Background list, choose No Fill:
A two-color gradient fill: Click the disclosure arrow next to Fill, click the Fill pop-up menu and choose Gradient Fill, then choose colors. The color well shows colors that match the template; the color wheel opens the Colors window, where you can choose any color. Use the controls to change the angle and direction of the gradient.
Visually filling the cells Aqua, or some other color, actually has a really important role in this locking and unlocking of cells. Without the color, how would you tell Excel which cells need to be locked and unlocked This is how I told Excel what to do.
Normally, the shape we inserted into worksheet was filled with no transparency background color. If you want to fill a certain shape with transparent background color, you can try the following method.
2. If you are using Microsoft 2016 and 2013, the Format Shape pane will pop up on the right side in current worksheet, please expand the Fill options under the Fill & Line tab, keep the Solid fill option selected, specify a background color in the Color drop-down list as you need, then enter a transparent percentage into the Transparency box. And finally close the Format Shape pane. See screenshot:
And if you are using Microsoft 2010 and 2007, a Format Shape dialog box will pop up as below screenshot shown. Please select Fill in the left bar. In the right side of the dialog box, keep the Solid fill option selected, specify a background color in the Color drop-down list as you need, then enter a transparent percentage into the Transparency box. And finally close the dialog box.
I filled the smaller circles with colors from the Color pane that approximate the colors in the graphic. Comparing HSL values shows that the colors selected for the style are not the same as those available in the Color pane. This is the case for the Chart and Table styles as well. Further, different graphics use different sets of colors.
The first example is the default Text Box (created by using the Text Box Shape from the Shapes menu, for example). The default is no Text Outline and the Text fill color is Text 1 from the color scheme. There is no Text Outline and the Shape containing the text has no Fill or Outline.
On the other hand, if I type text into a shape with a dark Fill (the third example), the Text Fill is automatically set to Background 1 (white), presumably to improve the contrast. But, if I change the shape Fill to lighter colors, the Text Fill is not changed (second and third examples). As you can see, the light gray example is unacceptable.
difference picks the darker of the colors between the content and background and subtracts it from the other (lighter) color. If either of the colors between both content and background is white, then the result is an inverse of the other color.
Our visual branding relies almost exclusively on a proprietary Northwestern Purple (Purple 100) and its tints and shades. By using a range of tones, we add flexibility without sacrificing the recognition and equity of our heritage color. The range of tones runs from Northwestern Purple 160 (darkest) to Northwestern Purple 10 (lightest). Anything darker or lighter loses its connection to Northwestern Purple. 1e1e36bf2d
