Is there a way to load our company colors as the default color palette?

We have a company color palette and we would like to use these colors in our apps.  Is there a way to specify what colors we'd like to show as our default colors - rather than using the default colors set by QlikView?  I think Themes may do this, but can we just set the colors in the script without having to develop a theme? Thanks.

You can create a document, change the colors as needed and then create a theme file. You can then use that theme file in new documents. Or you can use the Qlikview Components Library: Qvc Gets Colorful | Qlikview Cookbook

First check what's the RGB() for the color of your company.

You can do that by taking a snapshot of the color into paint also. You will see the RGB of that particular color code. set the same in QV RGB as well.

Hope that helps.

You can also update the palette without using a theme file. Set up the palette the way you want it and save it as your master doc. Use Color Advanced Settings to update your User Default using this object. Have each developer open this doc and object and do the same to update their own user defaults. Or use it to prime a Document Default for a new project.

Here is a quick way that displays all 18 colors in the palette for a sample chart.

Create a Bar chart, Horizontal orientation.

Dimension: =ValueLoop(1,18,1)

Expression: =1
