FillForegnd Cell (Fill Format Section)

Office 2007

Determines the color used for the foreground (stroke) of the shape's fill pattern.


To set the color, enter a number from 0 to 23. The number corresponds to a color in the current color palette, which is set in the Color Palette dialog box (click Color Palette on the Tools menu).

To enter a custom color, use the RGB or HSL function. The value of a custom color is its RGB color, and RGB(r, g, b), rather than a number, will be shown in the ShapeSheet window. When used in numeric operations, custom colors have values of 24 and above.

You can set the transparency of the foreground fill in the FillForegndTrans cell.
