Mix colors

This tutorial shows you how to use TrackBar to get values for red, green, blue color values. To generate actual color value it use ColorToRGB function.

Mix colors

Following procedure change the color of the image object.

procedure TForm1.ChangeColor(Sender: TObject);
Var
    CRed, CGreen, CBlue : TColor;
begin
    { Display mixture of colors }
    Shape1.Brush.Color:=StrToInt64Def('$'+
    IntToHex(ColorToRGB(Blue),2)+
    IntToHex(ColorToRGB(Green),2)+
    IntToHex(ColorToRGB(Red),2),0);
    { Convert integer to color value }
    CRed:=StrToInt64Def('$0000'+IntToHex(ColorToRGB(Red),2),0);    
    CGreen:=StrToInt64Def('$00'+IntToHex(ColorToRGB(Green),2)+'00',0);
    CBlue:=StrToInt64Def('$'+IntToHex(ColorToRGB(Blue),2)+'0000',0);
    { display circles for each color }
    Image1.Canvas.Brush.Color:=CRed;
    Image1.Canvas.Pen.Color:=CRed;
    Image1.Canvas.Ellipse(X-25, Y-40, X+25, Y+10);
    Image1.Canvas.Brush.Color:=CGreen;
    Image1.Canvas.Pen.Color:=CGreen;
    Image1.Canvas.Ellipse(X-40, Y-15, X+10, Y+35);
    Image1.Canvas.Brush.Color:=CBlue;
    Image1.Canvas.Pen.Color:=CBlue;
    Image1.Canvas.Ellipse(X-10, Y-15, X+40, Y+35);
end;

When changing track bar position, use following method to change color intensity.

procedure TForm1.RedTrackBarChange(Sender: TObject);
begin
    Red:=RedTrackBar.Position;
    ChangeColor(Self);
end;

procedure TForm1.GreenTrackBarChange(Sender: TObject);
begin
    Green:=GreenTrackBar.Position;
    ChangeColor(Self);
end;

procedure TForm1.BlueTrackBarChange(Sender: TObject);
begin
    Blue:=BlueTrackBar.Position;
    ChangeColor(Self);
end; 

This one draws three circles with basic colors at startup.

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
    Red:=255;
    Green:=255;
    Blue:=255;
    X:=Image1.Width Div 2;
    Y:=Image1.Height Div 2;
    Image1.Canvas.Brush.Color:=clRed;
    Image1.Canvas.Pen.Color:=clRed;
    Image1.Canvas.Ellipse(X-25, Y-40, X+25, Y+10);
    Image1.Canvas.Brush.Color:=cllime;
    Image1.Canvas.Pen.Color:=cllime;
    Image1.Canvas.Ellipse(X-40, Y-15, X+10, Y+35);
    Image1.Canvas.Brush.Color:=clBlue;
    Image1.Canvas.Pen.Color:=clBlue;
    Image1.Canvas.Ellipse(X-10, Y-15, X+40, Y+35);
end;
