Changing Text color using CMYK values

Recommended Posts

I see where you can assign a color to text using a predetermined color from the Color List, and how you can assign a text color using hex values. But can you do it using CMYK values?


I have Profile Attributes that are CMYK values that I use for coloring text boxes via an OnStart script. I would like to be able to use those same values to color text. Is it possible? Or do I need to convert the CMYK values to their hex equivalents and then apply them?

//                  Name        C    M  Y  K
new FusionProColor('New Color', 100, 0, 0, 0);
return '<color name="New Color">Text String></color>';


return '<color cmyk="FF000000">Text String></color>';

Note that these are still CMYK values; it's just that the tag uses two hex digits representing 0 to 255 (0xFF) for each channel, instead of a percentage from 0 to 100 (0x64).
