Detailed Description

Utility class for manpulating RGBA colors.

sf::Color is a simple color class composed of 4 components:

  • Red
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Alpha (opacity)

Each component is a public member, an unsigned integer in the range [0, 255]. Thus, colors can be constructed and manipulated very easily:

sf::Color color(255, 0, 0); // red
color.r = 0; // make it black
color.b = 128; // make it dark blue

The fourth component of colors, named "alpha", represents the opacity of the color. A color with an alpha value of 255 will be fully opaque, while an alpha value of 0 will make a color fully transparent, whatever the value of the other components is.

The most common colors are already defined as static variables:

Colors can also be added and modulated (multiplied) using the overloaded operators + and *.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

sf::Color::Color ( )

Default constructor.

Constructs an opaque black color. It is equivalent to sf::Color(0, 0, 0, 255).

sf::Color::Color ( Uint8  red,
Uint8  green,
Uint8  blue,
Uint8  alpha = 255 
)

Construct the color from its 4 RGBA components.

Parameters
redRed component (in the range [0, 255])
greenGreen component (in the range [0, 255])
blueBlue component (in the range [0, 255])
alphaAlpha (opacity) component (in the range [0, 255])

Friends And Related Function Documentation

bool operator!= ( const Color left,
const Color right 
)
related

Overload of the != operator.

This operator compares two colors and check if they are different.

Parameters
leftLeft operand
rightRight operand
Returns
True if colors are different, false if they are equal
Color operator* ( const Color left,
const Color right 
)
related

Overload of the binary * operator.

This operator returns the component-wise multiplication (also called "modulation") of two colors. Components are then divided by 255 so that the result is still in the range [0, 255].

Parameters
leftLeft operand
rightRight operand
Returns
Result of left * right
Color & operator*= ( Color left,
const Color right 
)
related

Overload of the binary *= operator.

This operator returns the component-wise multiplication (also called "modulation") of two colors, and assigns the result to the left operand. Components are then divided by 255 so that the result is still in the range [0, 255].

Parameters
leftLeft operand
rightRight operand
Returns
Reference to left
Color operator+ ( const Color left,
const Color right 
)
related

Overload of the binary + operator.

This operator returns the component-wise sum of two colors. Components that exceed 255 are clamped to 255.

Parameters
leftLeft operand
rightRight operand
Returns
Result of left + right
Color & operator+= ( Color left,
const Color right 
)
related

Overload of the binary += operator.

This operator computes the component-wise sum of two colors, and assigns the result to the left operand. Components that exceed 255 are clamped to 255.

Parameters
leftLeft operand
rightRight operand
Returns
Reference to left
bool operator== ( const Color left,
const Color right 
)
related

Overload of the == operator.

This operator compares two colors and check if they are equal.

Parameters
leftLeft operand
rightRight operand
Returns
True if colors are equal, false if they are different
