Convert hexadecimal rgb to esoui SetColor(r,g,b,a)

Hi there,

How can I convert hex rgb CFDCBD to what ever system eso uses in SetColor.

got it:

-- declare your color once in your initialization code
local MINT_GREEN = ZO_ColorDef:New("c8ffd2")

-- assign it to the control whenever you need it

There are also now a bunch of utility functions on ZO_ColorDef that allow you to convert from format to format. For instance:

local r, g, b, a = ZO_ColorDef.HexToRGBA("c8ffd2")
Nyght_Status_Window_StatusBar:SetColor(r, g, b, a)
But if you're going to use the color more than once, it's usually good to make a global ZO_ColorDef instance once and use it repeatedly.
