Return Value

Array that contains channels of the color.


The order of channels is the same as byte order in numeric representation of the color. The last item always contains alpha channel. Therefore the order is a following (from first array item to last):

  • RGBblue, green, red, alpha;
  • CMYKblack, yellow, magenta, cyan, alpha;
  • Grayscaleintensity level, alpha;

Also, you can use extended version of this method, i.e. ToArray32().
