Convert RGB value to Hex
This is a simple script that does one function: converts RGB decimal values to hex. As initially created, it will only do one value at a time. While it would be nice to allow this to remain open while you work with Scribus, this initial version will have to be closed to carry out any Scribus operations.
- Start the script – there are no requirements other than running it from Scribus. One could certainly alter this to run outside of Scribus by eliminating the valueDialog and messageBox features.
- Enter an RGB decimal value in the initial dialog. If you enter nothing, the value '255' is the default. Values greater than 255 default to 255, less than 0 to 0.
- When you are finished, enter '0' (the number zero, not the letter O).
#!/usr/bin/env python # File:rgb2hex.py # simple utility to convert rgb values to hex # within Scribus import scribus colorN = 255 while colorN != 0: color = scribus.valueDialog('Color Values','Enter the RGB value, 0 to quit') if color == '': color = '255' colorN = int(color) if colorN > 255: color = '255'; colorN = 255 if colorN < 0: color = '0'; colorN = 0 hexN = hex(colorN) hexN = hexN.lstrip('0x') if len(hexN) == 1: hexN = '0' + hexN result = scribus.messageBox ('Hex Value','RGB value of '+ color + ' is \n Hex value of '+ hexN,scribus.BUTTON_OK)
- I would like to add the ability to enter the complete RGB values for a given color. Just needs some parsing, maybe a tuple.
