To apply styles to areas

In Display Manager, right-click a feature layer Edit Style.

Apply Fill To The Area

Apply Fill To The Area

Select this check box to fill polygons.

NoteIf you are creating a theme, this check box does not appear. Instead, check the Theme The Polygons check box in the Theme Polygons dialog box.
Fill Pattern

Select Solid or a pattern.

Foreground Transparency

For solid fills, specify Foreground Transparency if desired.

Foreground Color

For a non-thematic style, specify the Foreground Color for solid or pattern fills.

Foreground Color Range

For themes, instead of a single foreground color, select one of the following:

  • Generated Between Two Colors: Select the first and last color for the foreground. Intermediate colors are interpolated automatically.
  • Color Palette: Select a set of predefined color ranges.
Background Color

For non-thematic pattern fills, specify Background Color. If you do not want a background color for the pattern, click Transparent.

NoteIn polygons with transparent backgrounds, the colors you see on the map may differ from the colors displayed in the Preview frame because the Preview frame uses a white background, which may differ from the color beneath the transparent objects in your map.
Background Color Range

For themes, instead of a single background color, select the first and last color for the background. Intermediate colors are interpolated automatically.
