Newer Window Managers maintain a table of colour settings for programs to use as “standard colours”. This is called the System Palette, also known as a ‘colour theme’. Four system palette tables, or themes, are supplied with the operating system.

The list is sorted by usage rather than colour and includes colour values to be used for display items such as window background, border, loose items and so on. The items are referenced by a 4-digit hex number (16-bit value) as per the list under the entry for WM_INK, or the decimal number equivalent. These numbers should not be used in standard INK, PAPER and BORDER statements – they are not colour values, merely an index to an entry in a list of colour values. They should be used with the WM_x equivalent commands, which will look up the colour values to be used for the item numbers in the list.

WM_STRIP sets the strip colour for the channel indicated to the colour for the specified item number from the system palette.

Example

WM_STRIP #1,$204

Sets the strip colour in #1 to the title window background colour from the current system palette.
