Introduction to colors in WebUI
In AIMMS WebUI there are three sets of colors with different purposes.
1. Primary Colors
AIMMS specific colors that contribute to the look and feel of the application. Used for branding, buttons, active states, etc.
Neutral colors used for interface elements. To achieve a harmonious look, a small amount of Primary Blue is mixed into the gray. When using custom Primary Colors we advise to adjust the Graytones as well with a small percentage of the primary color to achieve a harmonious look.
3. Data Colors
The colors used for data visualization. AIMMS comes out of the box with sets of 9, 11 and 19 colors for use in graphs, charts, etc.
1. Primary colors
These are the colors that are used for actions or for active elements. The primary color is used for the main navigation and buttons. The secondary color is used as hover color or active color.

3. Data Colors
When choosing colors to use for your data, try to use one of these approaches to color schemes for data visualization.
A. Sequential schemes are suited to ordered data that progress from low to high. Lightness steps dominate the look of these schemes, with light colors for low data values to dark colors for high data values.
B. Diverging schemes put equal emphasis on mid-range critical values and extremes at both ends of the data range. The critical class or break in the middle of the legend is emphasized with light colors and low and high extremes are emphasized with dark colors that have contrasting hues.
C. Qualitative schemes do not imply magnitude differences between legend classes, and hues are used to create the primary visual differences between classes. Qualitative schemes are best suited to representing nominal or categorical data.
