How to Set IsByLayer color and assign it to an Entity

Hello,

 

I am using the RealDWG2015 sdk. I am using it to export into dwg my own representation.

 

Basically I create the layer first and I assign a color like this:

 

LayerTable layerTable = (LayerTable)tr.GetObject(db.LayerTableId, OpenMode.ForWrite);
LayerTableRecord record = new LayerTableRecord();
record.Name = "my layer"
record.Color = Autodesk.AutoCAD.Colors.Color.FromColorIndex(ColorMethod.ByAci, 0); //I want it black

 

Then, If I create an entity i dont see a method to create a color and set the "IsByLayer" property to TRUE.

 

Basically I want the color of the entity set to IsByLayer so, please correct me if I am wrong, it will have the opposite color of the layer backgroun (white).

 

What would be the best approach?

 

Thank you

Try:
dbEnt.Color = Color.FromColorIndex(ColorMethod.ByLayer, 256);
