Short Name: Colors[2]

Requires: Base Development System

Class: MultiSegmentPipe Properties

To Use: Create a property.

Gets or sets the color of the Multi-Segment Pipe control.

The Multi-Segment Pipe control is a Boolean control that uses different colors to represent TRUE and FALSE values. Therefore, you can change the color of the pipe network to customize what the pipe network represents. For example, you might use the color blue to represent cold water and the color red to represent hot water flowing through the pipe network.

This property uses an array of two clusters, where each cluster contains a color pair, to represent the TRUE and FALSE values. Each color pair represents the foreground and background color of the control. You can set the color of the Multi-Segment Pipe control by wiring an array of two hexadecimal number pairs with the form RRGGBB or by wiring an array of two color box constant pairs to the property.

You also can set the colors interactively.
