3.4.1 Creating a New Color Table
In this section we will create a color table to use within the IDV. This example color table is intended to represent a comfort range of temperatures.
  1. Open up the Color Table Editor from the Tools->Color Table Editor menu if it is not already open.
  2. Select the default color table if it is not already displayed. Show popup
  3. Rename this color table by selecting the File->Save As... menu and entering the name "Comfort".
  4. You should now have the same looking color table but with a new name displayed. We will create a new category, "Workshop" for this color table. More on categories Show popup
  5. Now, note the Range values 0.0 - 100.0. We are going to set these to an example range for temperature in Celsius.
  6. Add breakpoints at the 0 value (freezing), 15 (comfortable), and 25 (hot).
  7. Now, let's come up with an interesting color scheme.
  8. Once you are done you should save this color table by selecting the File->Save menu item.
