Operator Scope of Action:
Operator First Added:
New to v5.8.0, returns Color as a hex-string, regardless of source data is a hex value or named color.
Thus if $MyColor is "bright red":
$MyString = $MyColor.format() gives "#ff0000"
$MyString = $MyColor gives "bright red"
Whilst if $MyColor is "#330099":
$MyColor.format() gives "#330099"
$MyString = $MyColor gives "#330099"
Therefore for a Color-type attribute set to a named colour, to get that name string simply pass the attribute's value to a string. So if $MyColor is "bright blue", this:
$MyString = $MyColor
…gives "bright blue" and this:
$MyString = $MyColor + " ("+$MyColor.format()+")"
…gives "bright blue (#0000ff)".
This supplements the existing format() function.
