# Using Hex number with shape syntax

Hi,

I am just playing around with different shapes and colours at the moment, I
have managed the "standard" colours like this:

plot(Time, Value, 'r.')

Which obviously prints a red dot.

However how do use the hex colour map with the ".", I have tried:

plot(Time, Value, '#330066.')
plot(Time, Value, '#330066,.')
plot(Time, Value, '#330066' '.')
plot(Time, Value, '#330066', '.')

Not quite sure on the syntax.

Thank you in advance

Use the named kwarg "linestyle":

plot(Time, Value, '#330066', linestyle='.')

I think you meant marker, since the '.' represents a marker rather
than a linestyle

plot(Time, Value, color='#330066', marker='.')

Perfect!

Thanks guys

Did this in the end:

plot(Time, Value, 'o', markersize = 1, markerfacecolor = '#330066',
markeredgecolor = '#330066'
