Description Creates colors for storing in variables of the color datatype. The parameters are interpreted as RGB or HSB values depending on the current colorMode(). The default mode is RGB values from 0 to 255 and therefore, the function call color(255, 204, 0) will return a bright yellow color. More about how colors are stored can be found in the reference for the color datatype.
