The Fortran name of this function is NhlFFreeColor.

This function removes a color, specified by its HLU index, from the Workstation color map.

C Synopsis

#include <ncarg/hlu/hlu.h>
#include <hfile for Workstation class object>

NhlErrorTypes NhlFreeColor(
	        int	workid,
		int	ci

Fortran Synopsis

      subroutine NhlFFreeColor(workid, ci, ierr)
      integer workid, ci, ierr


workid (input)
Integer identifier of an instance of a Workstation class object
ci (input)
Integer color index in the range 1 through 255 of a currently allocated color.
ierr (output, Fortran only)
Error code.


Type name:		NhlTErrorTypes
typedef enum _NhlErrType{
	NhlFATAL	= -4,	/* "FATAL"	*/
	NhlWARNING	= -3,	/* "WARNING"	*/
	NhlINFO		= -2,	/* "INFO"	*/
	NhlNOERROR	= -1	/* "NOERROR"	*/
} NhlErrorTypes;


This function deallocates a HLU color index from the Workstation object's colormap. An error will be generated if the color index is not currently allocated. Once a color index has been freed, it will be eligible for reallocation during a subsequent call to NhlNewColor. If you draw a plot object using a freed color index to specify the color of any of its features, those features will be drawn using the foreground color (HLU color index 1, NhlFOREGROUND).

Return Values

The NhlFreeColor C function returns a value of type NhlErrorTypes, and the NhlFFreeColor Fortran subroutine returns the error in ierr. The following table indicates what the various return Error Values mean:
Value	|			Meaning
NOERROR	|	function successful
INFO	|	minor recoverable error
WARNING	|	recoverable error
FATAL	|	function failed; continuing the program
	|       may result in core dump
