Hi,

Is there a way to use RGB colors rather than named colors?

your library is very simple to use and works great. thanks for this awesome library.

Certainly,

If you have the ARGB value you can use one of the following:

XLColor.FromArgb(Int32 argb)
XLColor.FromArgb(Int32 a, Int32 r, Int32 g, Int32 b)
XLColor.FromArgb(Int32 r, Int32 g, Int32 b)

If you have the System.Drawing.Color you can just feed it to XLColor:

XLColor.FromColor(Color color)

You can also use a Hex value if you have it:

XLColor.FromHtml(String htmlColor)

 

I'll update the "Using Colors" page in the documentation to make this more explicit.

Not yet, I'm going to implement hyperlinks (shouldn't take long), and then tackle graphs/charts. It should take anywhere between 1 and 3 months.
