Ok, so I'm reading and writing excel files for work using a program I created to do my work for me and I'm having 1 formatting issue. I cant get java to produce the correct color based on the RGB values I got from an excel template we have at work.
I dont know the exact RGB value b/c I'm not at work, but I believe it was something around
R: 197, G: 217, B: 241
However this was just giving me white, while I needed a light blueish green color. If a tweaked the RGB a bit, it would either turn into medium blue or white (depending on which way I tweaked). I also tried some colors with RGB values I got from a color table I found online, but the colors didnt quite match up there either. If it was supposed to be a medium-dark color, it would appear darker than intended. If it was supposed to be a light-medium color, it would appear practically white or extremely light.
My boss said I can just find a different similar color, but its REALLY pissing me off. Is there something special I should know about Java's Color class? I never have been able to really get the colors right.
BTW, I use SmartXLS to read/write xls files, the API sucks but the email support and the power and ease of use of it is incredible.
