[ANSWERED] Is there a way to display HEX values from Color Maker HSBA to the stage?

  • Beta Platinum

    Hi,

    I am prototyping a colour counter that returns seconds, minutes and colour information ie. displaying RGB, Hue and potentially hex values as the counter cycles through 360° hue spectrum. I have been able to extract the RGB and hue values but when I try to display the hex values they are converted. Is there a way of routing hex values without them being converted?

    best wishes

     I don't believe so (they are just a format representation of an Integer).
    But if you run the Hex value into a 'Text Formatter' and use the parsing string " P1:8X"
    You will get a text formatted version of it.

    I was doing just this the other day :)

    Using a different approach to @DusX, here's a user actor that a uses the Logical Calculator to shift the various components of the color (which is a 32-bit integer with A, R, G and B as 8-bit values) into the right place and then output them as integers that display as hex values. (I am not sure if you needed a string output or integer outputs.) Anyway, for what it's worth.
