What's that

Vectorworks ships with a set of default color palettes defined as XML files in the default content folders. Each color palette contains a set of named color definitions.

Each Vectorworks document has a color palette defined within the document. This palette is accessible through the VCOM IDocumentColorTable interface. The document color palette is dynamically modified by Vectorworks as new colors are being used by the user.

Enumerate The Color Palette of the Current Document

void CMenu_EventSink::DoInterface()
  CRGBColor	myColor( 255, 0, 0 );

  VCOMPtr<IDocumentColorTable>	documentColorTable( IID_DocumentColorTable );

  SColorRecord	colorRecord;
  documentColorTable->GetColorRecord( myColor.GetColorIndex(), colorRecord );

Working with the CMYK Color of SColorRecord

SColorRecord	colorRecord;
TGSColorV2	rgbColor( colorRecord.fCyan, colorRecord.fMagenta, colorRecord.fYellow, colorRecord.fKey );
rgbColor.ConvertTo( TGSColorV2::eRGB );

Uint8 r, g, b;
rgbColor.GetRGB8( r, g, b );
