I am getting Color byte = 117 after using FontGetColor macro on fontid. But this value doesn't match to any of NOTES_COLOR_XXX. SO how can I calculate the color from FONTID?
In notes peek I can see it is displaying exact color.
SOrry it is for notes 7

Sadly, I don't know the hex-values for these colors...

How about developing it yourself?? And then publish it?

Here's a way: create a screen that contains squares of all possible colour numbers, view it in a browser, use a colour picker to get the RGB values, put it in a table, and use that table in your code.

Finally I found it. It uses the 140 color value index to do so. But I am still not satisfied because I am not getting API or list to do so.

Be pragmatic. It is probably hard-coded in Notes, so do the same and document your code well. Or publish (part of) it in some forum.
