Thanks for taking the time to answer my question.
I\'m generating a PDF document using iText in Java. I need to set the column headers of a table a different colour than
Cell hcell = new Cell(); Color color = WebColors.getRGBColor("red"); hcell.setBackgroundColor(color);
You'll need to take your 8-bit hexadecimal color value and convert it to 8-bit RGB values.
How to convert hex to rgb using Java?
Then you'll be able to create a new BaseColor with your RGB values.
cell.setBackgroundColor(new BaseColor(255, 0, 0));
Take a look at this site. Even though it says C# there are only Java codes. Let me know if you find it or not. I created an successful PDF system looking at those examples.
