Hi Telerik Team! Is it possible to fill, for example a rectangle, with a color based on CSS class, instead that the hexadecimal code ? I mean, I would like to assign the color of a rectangle based on some colors that change according the theme's color palette, for example the colors displayed in dataviz different series or the color of notifications.But for doing this I have to set a CSS class on fill.color field of the drawing object.

If this isn't possible, do you have any other suggestion to color some drawing object according the theme's color palette?

Thanks !

Hello,

Please accept my apologies for the delayed response.

The shapes in the Drawing API are technically not part of the DOM unless you render them as SVG (technically VML as well).

We tend not to expose SVG specific implementation details such as class name.
If we do you'll get different output when rendering to PDF and Canvas.

What you can do instead is to obtain a the set color via the computed style. See this snippet for a demo.
Does this make sense?

Ok Tsonev, thanks for the reply, I've understood the example, but after some brainstorming with my team mates we have decided to keep the color fixed. Also because we use the color of a shape as category label.
