SetTextColor — Set general text color




SetTextColor sets the default color which is used for legend text, tick labels, and data labels.



Color value to use. See Section 3.5, “Colors” for more on color values.


The default text color is black.

Starting with PHPlot-5.7.0, there are more specific functions to set the color for labels: SetDataLabelColor, SetDataValueLabelColor, and SetTickLabelColor. All of these elements default to using the color set with SetTextColor.

Starting with PHPlot-6.0.0, the legend text color can be set with SetLegendTextColor. If that function is not used, then the legend text uses the color set with SetTextColor.


Legend text and data labels will be blue, and tick labels will be red. Note that the functions may be used in any order, with the same results.
