asked Oct 15, 2020 in Question / help by cilerler (200 points)

The code at the bottom generates the output below.  How can I set the sprite's background color (white) to the background color (purple)?

@startuml Archimate

skinparam defaultTextAlignment center
skinparam backgroundColor #EEEBDC

skinparam Legend {
    BackgroundColor #EEEBDC
    FontColor #000000
    BorderThickness 0

!define ICONURL
!include ICONURL/common.puml
!include ICONURL/devicons2/docker.puml

skinparam componentStyle rectangle
skinparam ArrowColor #546E7A

!define _dockerbackgroundcolor #7B1FA2
!define _dockercolor #CE93D8
!define _dockercoloralternate #F48FB1
!define _dockertextcolor #FFFFFF

DEV2_DOCKER(app1,<color:_dockertextcolor>FileMonitor,component,_dockercolor) _dockerbackgroundcolor
DEV2_DOCKER(app2,<color:_dockertextcolor>DataAPI,component,_dockercoloralternate) _dockerbackgroundcolor

app1 -down-> app2

legend right
|<_dockerbackgroundcolor><color:_dockercolor><$docker>    | App1 |
|<_dockerbackgroundcolor><color:_dockercoloralternate><$docker> | App2 |

Thanks for the report !

This issue has just been fixed in last beta and in the online server.

Tell us if it's not working for you.

Thanks, it is working; however, it doesn't allow me to leave a space from the left side where it does for the right side.

As workaround, you can add spaces with Unicode:

|<_dockerbackgroundcolor><color:_dockercolor><U+0020><U+0020><$docker>    | App1 |

Perfect, thank you!

Just so you know, I realized that the issue was where I placed the spaces

This is what I did

|    <_dockerbackgroundcolor><color:_dockercolor><$docker>    | App1 |

This is what I should do based on your example (and it worked as expected)

|<_dockerbackgroundcolor><color:_dockercolor>    <$docker>    | App1 |
