SAP Business Graphics colors some graphs for you automatically. Within these graphs, every graph object has a color different from that of its neighbors. The alternating colors are supplied by two sets of color variables (Contrast 1-Contrast 6 and 3D Object Panel 1-3D Object Panel 4) in the Color Assignment menu.
Graphs colored automatically include:
The graph type Surface is only colored automatically for the By side value of the Colors option.
The Walls, Strips, and Wedges graph types cause objects along one axis of the graph (for example, the rows) to be represented as edges between segments. Along the other axis (the columns) the objects are represented as separate walls or wedges.
For these graph types (using the current example), you cannot color automatically By row since each row is represented as an edge. You can however color By column. (The reverse is true if you switch the direction of the walls, strips, or wedges, using the Mirror dimension option.)
The sets of color variables used for automatic coloring are the six Contrast colors and the four 3D Object Panel colors.
The Contrast colors are used for all alternating coloring except the 3D Colors® By side option. In this case, alternating colors are taken from the 3D Object Panel colors.
