    Trouble with adding a swatch (script)


      So Im able to add a color swatch however it always turns out black. The documentation is rather rough so I thought I would ask the community after an hour or so of struggling. Funny enough, the swatch does get named and it complains if I dont give swatch.color a object... so I feel I am on the right track. Ideas?


      My script is to take a series of hex values, convert them to RGB and make 4 swatches.

      Illustrator Swatch - Pastebin.com

      ps: you can enter "http:// colorhunt.co/#00c3ffb463a65c49783b475e" into the text field.


      Thanks for looking!

          I ended up using this for debugging:



            var output = '';

            for (var property in swatch) {

             output += property + ': ' + swatch[property]+'; ';




          I was able to determine that it is colorswatch.cyan instead of colorswatch.c. Not only that but I couldn't get RGB to work correctly. Upon examination, even after declaring the object from RGBColor(), it came out as a CMYK based object. Possibly as a fallback?


          So im marking this as solved . I just wanted to post in here for others who amy find this in google.
