# How can I choose the fill color for list plots? [closed]

I have many list plots, and I want to fill them according to my own choice of color. Can I do this in Mathematica? And how I can get different number codes of filling curves? For example, how would I find what color was defined by RGBColor[1, 101/232, 9/29]?

Have a look at FillingStyle. The codes are just RGB colors where each color is specified with a Red, Green and Blue component between 0 and 1. You might want to examine the color scheme palette in the Palette menu. PS: I downvoted this because all this is easily found in the documentation (first and second hit when trying the search term 'fill'). –  Sjoerd C. de Vries Jul 12 '13 at 19:13

For filling list plots, read the ListPlot documentation under Examples > Options > Filling and Examples > Options > FillingStyle.

ColorSetter[]


Click on the gray color patch, and the color picker will pop-up.

### Edit

This will also pop up the color picker:

SystemDialogInput["Color"]


Another useful way to pick colors is to use ColorData. For example, to choose named, HTML-safe colors, evaluate

ColorData["HTML", "Panel"]


This is an interactive panel. Tooltips will show you the color names as you mouse over the panel. Clicking on one the patches will produce a new notebook cell with the RGB value for the color clicked on.
