pyvista.Color#

class Color(color: Optional[color_like] = None, opacity: Optional[Union[int, float, str]] = None, default_color: Optional[color_like] = None, default_opacity: Union[int, float, str] = 255)[source]#

Helper class to convert between different color representations used in the pyvista library.

Many pyvista methods accept color_like parameters. This helper class is used to convert such parameters to the necessary format, used by underlying (VTK) methods. Any color name (str), hex string (str) or RGB(A) sequence (tuple, list or numpy.ndarray of int or float) is considered a color_like parameter and can be converted by this class. See Color.name for a list of supported color names.

Parameters
colorcolor_like, optional

Either a string, RGB sequence, RGBA sequence, or hex color string. RGB(A) sequences should either be provided as floats between 0 and 1 or as ints between 0 and 255. Hex color strings can contain optional '#' or '0x' prefixes. If no opacity is provided, the default_opacity will be used. If color is None, the default_color is used instead. The following examples all denote the color ‘white’:

  • 'white'

  • 'w'

  • [1.0, 1.0, 1.0]

  • [255, 255, 255, 255]

  • '#FFFFFF'

opacityint, float or str, optional

Opacity of the represented color. Overrides any opacity associated with the provided color. Allowed opacities are floats between 0 and 1, ints between 0 and 255 or hexadecimal strings of length 2 (plus the length of the optional prefix). The following examples all denote a fully opaque color:

  • 1.0

  • 255

  • '#ff'

default_colorcolor_like, optional

Default color to use when color is None. If this value is None, then defaults to the global theme color. Format is identical to color.

default_opacityint, float or str, optional

Default opacity of the represented color. Used when color does not specify an opacity and opacity is None. Format is identical to opacity.

Notes

The internally used representation is an integer RGBA sequence (values between 0 and 255). This might however change in future releases.
