Complete the following steps to select a custom color.

  1. In the Tools palette, click the foreground or background color box of the Coloring tool. A color picker appears. You also can access the color picker by right-clicking an object, a front panel pane, or block diagram background with the Coloring tool.

    Tip   Press the <Shift> key and right-click to display a temporary version of the Tools palette at the location of the cursor.

  2. Click the More Colors button in the bottom right corner of the color picker to select a specific color using the color utility on the operating system.
  3. Enter values between 0 and 255 in the Red, Green, and Blue fields.

    You can combine red, green, and blue in various proportions to obtain any color in the visible spectrum. The higher the value, the more intense the color. For example, if you enter 255 in the Red field and 0 in the Green and Blue fields, you create an intense red.

You also can select custom colors from a color box constant. If you are using a color box constant, use the Operating tool to click the color box constant and display the color picker, and proceed to step 2.
