I have a set of polygons that I need to symbolize with a certain color. I have an column in the attribute table that contains the contains the html hex color value (#FF0000 Red) that I want the polygon to be colored. Is there a way to symbolize the color based on the attribute value?
I see that this might be possible using ArcPy along with a .lyr file, but I am not very experienced with ArcPy, and the last post isn't that promising, stating that the symbology property is read-only. Using ArcPy to get layer symbology?
This post is making me think that it's not possible. Changing color of symbol in UniqueValuesSymbology object using ArcPy?
