colorThe color that the textdraw should be set to.

Returns

This function does not return any specific values.

Examples

new Text: gMyTextdraw;
public OnGameModeInit()
{
gMyTextdraw = TextDrawCreate(320.0, 425.0, "This is an example textdraw");
TextDrawUseBox(gMyTextdraw, 1);
TextDrawBackgroundColor(gMyTextdraw, 0xFFFFFFFF); // Set the background color of MyTextdraw to white
return 1;
}

Notes

tip

If TextDrawSetOutline is used with size > 0, the outline color will match the color used in TextDrawBackgroundColor. Changing the value of color seems to alter the color used in TextDrawColor

tip

If you want to change the background colour of a textdraw that is already shown, you don't have to recreate it. Simply use TextDrawShowForPlayer/TextDrawShowForAll after modifying the textdraw and the change will be visible.
