setting ad hoc gradient backgrounds in activity

asked Sep 7, 2016 in Wanted features by boshka (1,180 points)

Can we support the ad hoc gradient notations in the activity diagrams as follows?

partition #red/#white testPartition {

        #blue/#white:testActivity;
}
 
Currently you can do this only globally by specifying the skinparams:
skinparam partitionBackgroundColor red/white
skinparam activityBackgroundColor blue/white

Good idea!

With last beta:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13064071/plantuml.jar

You can now have:

@startuml
start
partition #red/white testPartition {
        #blue\green:testActivity;
}
@enduml


Is this what you are looking for ?

there is one issue. Shouldn't this work too?

<back:#FF9999/white>#FF9999/white</back>

You mean, in something like:

@startuml
start;
:hello <back:#FF9999/white>there</back>;
@enduml

So not related to partition ?
