One may use data defined override in order to set symbol colours. The expression editor says, the expected format would be

string [r,g,b,a] as int 0-255 or #AARRGGBB as hex or color as color's name

For lazy coding with few colours the last approach is the easiest (in my opinion). Still, I was wondering if there's an exhaustive list of the colours accepted as arguments? I looked through the official documentation and googled some, but probably didn't use the correct terms.

Can someone provide me with said list of colour names?

    Fyi for others, the rgba format is something like: to_string(to_int( "RedFloat")) + ',' + to_string(to_int("GreenFloat")) + ',' + to_string(to_int("BlueFloat")) + ',255'

QGIS uses Qt for its graphical rendering (among other things). https://doc.qt.io/qt-6/qcolor.html#setNamedColor points to https://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/types.html#ColorKeywords so I expect that to be a comprehensive list of all the supported colors.

  • It would be great if the QGIS documentation was clear about this, maybe you could file a feature request at github.com/qgis/QGIS/issues for it? :) Jul 20, 2022 at 11:32
  • @Erik You copied the whole table into my answer. I don't think that is a good idea as the linked page is a highly reputable and stable resource.
