HyperMesh Ext API Function


If the parameter rgb is not NULL then it returns red, green and blue values specifying the component color. The values in rgb are returned not only for HM_COLOR_USE_RGB but for any returned value of the parameter std_color.

If the function succeeds, the return value is true. If the function fails, the return value is false. To get extended value information, call HM_ExtAPI::GetLastErrorCode().

Requires including hm_extapi.h.
