Notes
 

The components of the color in native PDF format.

PDF color components typically range between zero - no intensity - and one - 100% intensity. However this is not always the case. For color spaces such as Lab the components may take a wider range of values.

 

   

Example
 

In the following example we demonstrate how to use generic color components to draw in the Lab color space.

[C#]
using (Doc doc = new Doc()) {
  doc.Width = 80;
  doc.Rect.Inset(50, 50);
  ColorSpace cs = new ColorSpace(doc.ObjectSoup, ColorSpaceType.Lab);
  doc.ColorSpace = cs.ID;
  // This Lab color is a deep green
  doc.Color.ColorSpace = ColorOperatorType.ColorSpace;
  doc.Color.Components[0] = 50; // L range is 0 to +100
  doc.Color.Components[1] = -50; // a range is -100 to +100
  doc.Color.Components[2] = +50; // B range is -100 to +100
  doc.AddOval(true);
  doc.Save("examplelabcolorspace.pdf");
}

[Visual Basic]
  Using doc As New Doc()
    doc.Width = 80
    doc.Rect.Inset(50, 50)
    Dim cs As New ColorSpace(doc.ObjectSoup, ColorSpaceType.Lab)
    doc.ColorSpace = cs.ID
    ' This Lab color is a deep green
    doc.Color.ColorSpace = ColorOperatorType.ColorSpace
    doc.Color.Components(0) = 50
    ' L range is 0 to +100
    doc.Color.Components(1) = -50
    ' a range is -100 to +100
    doc.Color.Components(2) = +50
    ' B range is -100 to +100
    doc.AddOval(True)
    doc.Save("examplelabcolorspace.pdf")
  End Using
End Sub
