FillBkgnd Cell (Fill Format Section)

Office 2007

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

Remarks

To set the color, enter a number from 0 to 23. The number corresponds to a color in the current color palette, which you can also 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 background fill in the FillBkgndTrans cell.
