Main color

MuPAD® notebooks will be removed in a future release. Use MATLAB® live scripts instead.

MATLAB live scripts support most MuPAD functionality, though there are some differences. For more information, see Convert MuPAD Notebooks to MATLAB Live Scripts.

Value Summary

Library wrapper for “Colors, FillColor, LightColor, LineColor, and PointColorSee below


Color refers to the “main color” of an object.

Depending on the object type, Color refers to the line color (e.g., plot::Function2d), the fill color (plot::Surface), the point color (plot::Point2d), the light color (plot::PointLight), or the one-and-only entry in Colors (plot::Histogram2d).

In general, the main color of an object is the first one available in the list

  1. The first entry of Colors, if Colors contains exactly one entry.

  2. FillColor

  3. LineColor

  4. PointColor

  5. LightColor

The following object types deviate from this general rule and choose the line color as main color: plot::Arc2d, plot::Arc3d, plot::Circle2d, plot::Circle3d, plot::Ellipse2d, plot::Ellipse3d, plot::Ode2d, plot::Ode3d, plot::Parallelogram2d, plot::Polygon2d, plot::Polygon3d, and plot::Rectangle. plot::Sequence uses PointColor as the main color.


Color is a library attribute and does not appear in the inspector.


Example 1

Color is useful for unified input of different object types:

plot(plot::Function3d(sin(x-y/2), Color = RGB::Green),
     plot::Point3d([0, 0, 0], Color = RGB::Red),
     plot::Curve3d([x, 0, sin(x)], x = -6..6,
                   LineWidth = 2*unit::mm,
                   Color = RGB::Blue),
     Scaling = Constrained)
