FormatColor Object

Office 2007
Represents the fill color specified for a threshold of a color scale conditional format or the color of the bar in a data bar conditional format.

Version Information
 Version Added:  Excel 2007

Remarks

You can choose a color by passing an RGB value in the Color property or designate the color by indexing into the theme color palette using the ThemeColor property.

Example

The following code example creates a range of numbers and then applies a two-color scale conditional formatting rule to that range. The color for the minimum threshold is then assigned to red and the maximum threshold to blue by indexing into the ColorScaleCriteria collection to set individual criteria.

Visual Basic for Applications
Sub CreateColorScaleCF()

    Dim cfColorScale As ColorScale
    
    'Fill cells with sample data from 1 to 10
    With ActiveSheet
        .Range("C1") = 1
        .Range("C2") = 2
        .Range("C1:C2").AutoFill Destination:=Range("C1:C10")
    End With
    
    Range("C1:C10").Select
    
    'Create a two-color ColorScale object for the created sample data range
    Set cfColorScale = Selection.FormatConditions.AddColorScale(ColorScaleType:=2)
    
    'Set the minimum threshold to red and maximum threshold to blue
    cfColorScale.ColorScaleCriteria(1).FormatColor.Color = RGB(255, 0, 0)
    cfColorScale.ColorScaleCriteria(2).FormatColor.Color = RGB(0, 0, 255)
        
End Sub
