Contour Plot Colors

Hi again,

I’m sorry to bother you again but have come across another simple problem. I am partially color blind and it would be very useful in my analysis to use colored contour plots. I’ve seen other plots using a color scale that was mostly brown, grey, green, and other darked colors as opposed to the standard rainbow spectrum. I was wondering if there is a way to change the colours to the darker colors so that I can actually see it since I struggle to resolve blue, violet and other low wavelength colors and more specifically is there a way to set the different color scheme as default in version 5.26.00?

Thanks for your time and sorry for another question,



maybe gStyle->SetPalette(0); is what you are looking for?

Cheers, Axel.

Hi Axel,

That is exactly what I was looking for, thank you. Is there a way to make that the default contour palette upon login? If not, I will just always set it, but the convenience is worth asking about.

Cheers and thank you,


Put the command in your file rootlogon.C
