Hey all

I’ve developed a Gantt view web app which is driven by an Airtable table in the back-end.
Ideally I’d like to share the color scheme between the Gantt view and the Airtable interface.

Is there a way to get the colors used from Airtable? e.g. for a Single select field

Then I could make my Gantt table blocks colored to match my Airtable rows

Thank you

Every graphics application and even most office type applications have an eye dropper tool that allows you to sample the color from somewhere on the screen. Once you’ve sampled the color, you should be able to see the RGB value for use in your web app.

Hey Elliott, I am very interested in your GANTT web app. Best regards, Lois

Up ! I ma also very interested to be able to get the color of single and multiple select, API-wise.
To idea is to generate a custom report from the table with a bit of color context.
Thank you in advance to the API team for considering this.
