SVGGraph options: grid_back_stripe_colour

Option name:
Default value:
Added in version:
Data type:
colour or array [?]

The datatypes used in this documentation for specifying SVGGraph options are described below. All options can be a literal value of the data type described, a variable containing the data type, or an expression that will produce the data type when evaluated (and they must always be valid PHP expressions).

An array, the number and data types of its members will depend on the option for which is it used.
A boolean TRUE or FALSE value, or any values that convert easily such as 1, "1", 0 and "".
A callable function, which can be either the name of a function or an anonymous function itself.
Any of the colour values supported by SVG inside a single or double quoted string. These include three and six digit hex codes, RGB and RGBA colours, and colour names. SVG uses "none" for no colour, which generally leaves things transparent.
A colour value or one of the gradients and patterns supported by SVGGraph. See the SVGGraph colours page for details.
A negative or positive whole number or 0.
An integer or float value, or a string containing a number followed by one of these CSS units: px, in, cm, mm, pt, pc.
Any number supported by PHP, for example 1 or -3.2 or 1.63e5 or M_PI.
Single or double quoted strings. Remember to double-quote your strings if you are inserting a line break:
"Line 1\nLine 2".

Colour of grid background stripes.

This option sets the colour, gradient or pattern to use for the grid background stripes when the grid_back_stripe option is enabled.

The value of this option should be either a single colour which will drawn alternating with an empty stripe, or an array containing a list of colours, gradients and patterns that will be used in order across the grid.

Some examples:

$settings['grid_back_stripe_colour'] = '#f00';

This will fill the stripes with solid red. In between the stripes the background will show through. This could be useful if you want to draw a radar graph of Captain America's shield.

$settings['grid_back_stripe_colour'] = array('#f00', '#0f0', '#00f');

This will produce red, green and blue stripes repeating. It looks like a monitor test image, so I don't recommend it.

$settings['grid_back_stripe_colour'] = array(
  array('#ccc', '#eee', '#ccc', 'h'),
  array('#eee', '#ccc', '#eee', 'h'),

I've spread this last one across multiple lines to separate the stripes out more clearly. The NULL in the array means a blank stripe, so SVGGraph will not draw anything there. The second and fourth stripes are gradients (with the 'h' at the end to make them horizontal).

For details of the colours, gradients and patterns, study the SVGGraph colour page.
