Tekla tip #1: Change background color

In Tekla Structures you can change background color of model views and drawings. How?

Drawing background color

Default background color in tekla structures is white. You can change it to black by changing option:

XS_​BLACK_​DRAWING_​BACKGROUND = TRUE

Close drawing editor and open drawing to see change.

Model view background color:

To change model view background color set options:

XS_​BACKGROUND_​COLOR1 = 1.0 1.0 1.0  for left upper corner color

XS_​BACKGROUND_​COLOR2 = 1.0 1.0 1.0 for right upper corner color

XS_​BACKGROUND_​COLOR3 = 1.0 1.0 1.0 for left lower corner color

XS_​BACKGROUND_​COLOR4 = 1.0 1.0 1.0 for right lower corner color

 

The 1.0 1.0 1.0 stands for Red, Green and Blue color coefficient.

0.0 0.0 0.0 -> 0% Red 0% Green 0% Blue = BLACK

1.0 0.0 0.0 -> 100% Red 0% Green 0% Blue = RED

0.0 1.0 0.0 -> 0% Red 100% Green 0% Blue = GREEN

0.0 0.0 1.0 -> 0% Red 0% Green 100% Blue = BLUE

0.5 0.5 0.5 -> 50% Red 50% Green 50% Blue = GRAY

1.0 1.0 1.0 -> 100% Red 100% Green 100% Blue = WHITE

You can pick colors using popular color pickers from internet like:

Get R G and B values and divide it by 255 to get 0.0-1.0 coeficient.

Close model views and open to see  change.
