Function GetItemColor(
    item As ITreeMapItem,
    group As TreeMapItemGroupInfo
) As Color


Name Type Description
item ITreeMapItem

An object of a class implementing the ITreeMapItem interface. It is the object for which the color is obtained.

group TreeMapItemGroupInfo

A TreeMapItemGroupInfo value specifying information about the item position in a group.


Type Description

A Color value that is the color of the specified item.


To implement a custom colorizer, design a class implementing the ITreeMapColorizer interface and implement the interface ITreeMapColorizer.GetItemColor method. After that, an instance of the class can be assigned to the TreeMapControl.Colorizer property.
