Default getTrackColor() ??

Is there a way to get the color of a track ? I'm working on a midi controller and just realized it would be pretty slick to have color coding on the controller match that of Reaper. If not i want it.

Yep, it exists. The function is called almost exactly as you expected: GetTrackColor()

From the ReaScript documentation list under Help -> HTML lists (auto-generated):

Quote:
Returns the track color, as 0x01RRGGBB. Black is returned as 0x01000000, no color setting is returned as 0.

int GetTrackColor(MediaTrack* track)

Ah cool thanks. I did look for it but it was probably an old list.

I just saw an interview with Hans Zimmer and noticed an Euphonix System 5 in the background with colored knobs on it and thought that was a pretty nifty idea.

Yeah, get track/item color have been added quite recently.

Agreed, control surface reflecting the track colors for sure is extremely cool . Good luck with your project, certainly hope to hear/see more in due time.
