This modifier changes the fill color of your objects, e.g. cells, graphics or charts.
The Fill modifier changes the color of a visualization; almost invariably the background color. Some examples are:
- The cells of a Visual Grid
- Shapes contained inside the cells of a Visual Grid
- Icons contained inside the cells of a Visual Grid
- Chart artifacts, such as bars, lines and funnels, either contained inside the cells of a Visual Grid or in a Grunt Chart
The list above is not exhaustive - there are many other instances where the Fill modifier is useful. Generally, if your aim is to change the color of something, your best bet is to use the Fill modifier. Keep in mind that there are some minor exceptions, such as font color (which is changed using the Character style modifier).
The Fill Modifier has one property - the Color - and one advanced setting called Blending mode. To change the color, click the currently active color. A color palette selector show up.
The Blending mode is how your chosen color blends with the background color. If you are not familiar with blending modes and would like to learn more about them, check out this article. By default the blending mode is "None", meaning that the Fill modifier will not blend you color with the background color.
