Alarm Class Color Assignments

Alarm Class, alarm state animation and color index animation use indexes 0 through 15 in the rgb.dat file as the default colors.

If you define an rgb.dat file and change the colors in indexes 0 through 15 of the, you need to change colors displayed in the Alarm Class dialog box to match them.

Reasons to define an rgb.dat file include:

Change any of the default colors (0 through 95)

Add more colors to the default table (indexes 96 through 255 are available for this purpose)

Import screens from a CIMPLICITY System-I/U, -D/V, -H/U or -RS/U system that do not use the default color mappings.
