 predefinedColor  One of the predefined colors defined by the Colors class.   rgb  A three-digit hexadecimal number. The first digit specifies the color's R value, the second digit specifies the G value, and the third digit specifies the B value. For example, 00F.  argb  A four-digit hexadecimal number. The first digit specifies the color's A value, the second digit specifies its R value, the next digit specifies the G value, and the final digit specifies its B value. For example, F00F.  rrggbb  A six digit hexadecimal number. The first two digits specify the color's R value, the next two specify its G value, and the final two specify its B value. For example, 0000FF.  aarrggbb  An eight-digit hexadecimal number. The first two digits specify the color's A value, the next two specify its R value, the next two specify its G value, and the final two specify its B value. For example, FF0000FF.  scA   System.Single  The color's ScA value.  scR   System.Single  The color's ScR value.  scG   System.Single  The color's ScG value.  scB   System.Single  The color's ScB value.  profileUri   System.Uri  The International Color Consortium (ICC) or Image Color Management (ICM) color profile.  alphaValue   System.Single  The alpha channel color value. The value range is 0.0 to 1.0.  colorValue   System.Single  A comma-delimited list of 3 to 8 values that represent the color channels of the color profile. The value range is 0.0 to 1.0. 

This example shows how to use sRGB, ScRGB, and color profile values to create the color blue.
