Color Representations for Brown and Violet

Discussion in 'Java' started by kvnsmnsn@hotmail.com, Sep 9, 2005.

    Class <Color> includes constants for a lot of useful colors, but not-
    able by their absence are brown and violet. Can anyone give me rgb
    values for those two colors so I can create them using the standard
    constructor? Thanks in advance.

    The Color class supports over 16.5 million different colors. Not all of
    them are named, and AFAIK, there is no standard dictating what the RGB
    values for brown or violet should be.

    Rather than posting on the newsgroup everytime you want the RGB value
    for a new colour, I recommend you actually learn how RGB works, and it
    shouldn't be too difficult for you to come up with the values yourself. You
    might want to start at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RGB.

    You could also write a simple Java application (or applet if you prefer)
    to help you visualize how your colours will look. Just add 3 sliders (one
    for each of red, green and blue), and fill a rect with the color represented
    by the value on the sliders.

    An easy way to explore the possibilities is to run
    ColorChooserDemo from the Java Tutorial. The HSB tab is
    particularly helpful for color matching, and displays the
    RGB components "on the fly" as you move from color to color.

    You can easily develop some intuition for getting the desired RGB values
    yourself. All you need to memorize is:
    Color.black = new Color(0,0,0)
    Color.white = new Color(255,255,255)
    Color.red = new Color(255,0,0)
    Color.green = new Color(0,255,0)
    Color.blue = new Color(0,0,255)
    The rest is done by mixing colors in your mind:
    Violet is the middle between red and blue.
    Brown is in the middle between red and black.
    Got it?

    There is the Netscape standard brown and violet. These names are
    supported now by most browsers. HTML itself has a pathetically small
    palette.

    How to get A violet colour is a different question from how to get THE
    violet colour. The link http://mindprod.com/jgloss/colour.html
    should answer both.

    And if you are doing text, try the FontShower applet which shows
    various fonts, sizes in your choice of background and foreground
    colours.

    See http://mindprod.com/applets/fontshower.html for Swing
    and

    It is actually a bit more complicated. Brown is more of a dark
    yellowish-orange than dark red, and yellow is made in additive color mixing
    from green and red, which is a bit unintuitive for people who are used to
    additive color mixing with paints. I use this program to fiddle when I need
    a new color:

    Is it just me, or are there two instances of the applet running
    simultaneously and the scroll bar in the middle does nothing?

    Nice applet! I've just used it to check some browns. My brown (128,0,0)
    looks indeed like maroon, while your brown (128,64,0) is truly brownish. ;-)

    There is only one instance of the applet but it has two sets of components.
    The purpose was to see how various colors go with other colors. I will
    modify the page to make that more clear, since as you point out it seems
    unexpected.

    Except you are mixing light not pigments. so
    red+green = yellow
    green + blue = turquoise
    blue + red = violet

    the color mixing rules for pigments and light have little to do with
    physics and at a lot to with anatomy and the variable sensitivity of
    different cells on your retina to different frequencies of light.

    see http://mindprod.com/jgloss/colour.html#INTUITION

    Check out http://mindprod.com/jgloss/wavelength.html
    that converts a frequency of the rainbow to a Java colour.

    the Slider did not work in Opera Win2K Jdk 1.5, though the click
    buttons did.

    AWT still need something like JColorChooser and JColorChooser needs a
    hex display.

    I wrote a fairly primitive numerical hex/decimal ColorChooser for AWT.
    You can see it in action at
    http://mindprod.com/jgloss/fontshowerawt.html

    It has no sliders or ability to pick a colour by pointing at it.

    If I had known there was going to be a 'part 2', I'd
    have advised that the knowledge of what some interior
    designer chooses to define as 'DarkGoldenrod4' is of little
    or no relevance to programmers who can call on a palette of
    16,777,216 colors!

    Given the range of colors, any definition of color by name
    seems ..limiting and pointless.

    And ..NO! Do *not* start defining names for each one!

    The slider is not supposed to work - the sliders were added because I was
    color-coding both buttons and scrollbars and wanted to see how they would
    look together. I realize this is confusing to others because a slider would
    make sense as part of a color choosing interface (or rather, 3 sliders would
    make sense). I tried to explain it in the text notes below the applet, but
    as we all know, you shouldn't have to put text notes below an applet. This
    was just one of those applets I made for my own use and put up on the Web
    because where else do you go to find applets you have written?

    It's difficult to come up with a value for violet, because it is
    massively out of gamut, for RGB. Think, you've only got red, green and
    blue to play with, but you want to create blue with less red and green
    than blue phosphor (say) gives you.

    red + blue is known as purple.
