In attempting to create a standard color palette based on out branding colors, I attempted to set these color values to variables in OnStart, so as to have easy access to them throughout the application.
App->OnStart, I added this code:
After running OnStart, I then tried to use this in a Fill for a label, like so:
Which filled my label with black, thusly:
Checking my variables, I see that _LightestYellow is defined as a color, but has no value:
Setting the Fill value for the label to the what the variable was supposed to be defined as ,
, fills the label with yellow:
I would like to have a standard block of code that I add to every app so that I can access the branding colors easily
What (probably super simple) thing am I missing that is preventing me from successfully defining a variable as a ColorValue()?
Solved! Go to Solution.
great and happy to know. Remember when you assign the Color("djdjdj") to a variable on OnStart and then you try to use for Fill .. the variable behaves like a boolean variable and it return true or false 🙂
Would you go into a bit more detail on that, please?
Are you talking about this kind of code put into OnStart:
Set(_LightestBlue, ColorValue("#08c5fb")); ?
Under what condition would it return true and under what condition would it return false?
I tried plugging
into the text field, and the error came that it was expecting a text value. Also, in the variables, it sad that _LightestBlue has no value.
