RhinoScript – How do I use CurveArea to assign color??

    Hi, the return value of Rhino.CurveArea() is an array. That's why you get the mismatch. area(0) is the area.
    Variable declaration should be outside the loop, there is a typo in percent - precent, there is no check if it is a closed and planar curve (otherwise error), there is a typo in Rhino.ObjectColor(... and maybe a call mssing infront of the last function.

    I am trying to generate colored lines according to area of the polyline. Using a very simple script, getting a mismatch error.

    Option Explicit
    'Script written by <insert name>
    'Script copyrighted by <insert company name>

    Call Main()
    Sub Main()
            Dim crvs, crv, max
            crvs = Rhino.GetObjects("select curves",4)
            max = Rhino.GetReal("max area",8)

            For Each crv In crvs
                    Dim area, precent
                    area = Rhino.CurveArea(crv)
                    percent = area/max
                    If percent > 1 Then
                            percent = 1
                    End If
                    Rhino.ObjectColorcrv, RGB( 255*percent, 0, 255*(1-percent))
    End Sub

Why are these buttons gray?
