Get a color parameter from the data base.


colorPar = GetColor( path, par, default=None )


path (string)
Data base path of the node containing the parameter.
par (string)
Parameter name.
default (array) (of RGB)
Default value. This value is returned if the indicated path and par does not exist.

Return Value

colorPar (array) (of RGB)
The parameter value.


  • The parameter in the data base must be an array of RGB values.
  • The parameter must exist in the data base or the default must not be None.


This routine returns a color parameter from the data base. The parameter address is given by its node path and the par name. If the parameter does not exist, the default value is returned. For example,
nodeClr = ROOT + RS + 'color'
clrValue = GetColor( nodeClr, 'colorValue' )
