Get Cell Color

Overview

The Get Cell Color activity uses the Microsoft Graph GetRangeFormat API to retrieve the color properties of specified cells (CellAddress) in a workbook (Workbook) worksheet (SheetName). After retrieving the color properties, the activity returns the cell color (Color) as a hex value (e.g., #FFFFFF).

How it works

The following steps and message sequence diagram is an example how the activity works from design time (i.e., the activity dependencies and input/output properties) to run time.

  1. Complete the Setup steps.
  2. Add the Microsoft Office 365 Scope activity to your project.
  3. Add an activity or run an external process that outputs a DriveItem object (e.g., Find Files and Folders, Create Workbook, Copy Item).
  4. Add the Get Cell Color activity inside the Microsoft Teams Scope activity.
  5. Enter values for the Input properties.
  6. Create and enter a String variable for the Output property.
  7. Run the activity.
    • Your input property values are sent to the GetRangeFormat API.
    • The API returns the String value to your output property variable.
