SetPlotcolor to Orange. Is it possible?

I'm trying to plot using Orange color No success

Red and Grenn work ok.

Is it possible to
If FLagorange = True then begin
   Plot4(1, "Flag");
   SetPlotColor (4, Orange);
I did try a numeric number instead of "Orange"... No success

Where could I found a list of the acceptable color. I already know:
Red, Green, Blue, Yellow. How about the others?

Yes this seems to be an odd limitation from EasyLanguage compared to NinjaTrader's pallet for instance. But as JVentura pointed out, it is easily overcome. You can google "RGB Wheel" and find plenty of quick sites to help you get the rgb values you need to input for the color you want.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
