## show 5 colours from the quantitative colour palette S2
thlColorsDisplay(n = 5, type = "quanti", name = "S2")

## show 8 THL main colours with some transparency
thlColorsDisplay(n = 8, type = "main", alpha = 0.8)

## show THL qualitative colours
thlColorsDisplay(n = 1:10, type = "quali", name = NULL)

## THL qualitative colours in the order in which they should be used in line plots
thlColorsDisplay(n = 1:6, type = "quali", name = "line")

## Attempt to generate 11 colours from twoway quantitative palette K1 yields an error
## Not run: 
thlColorsDisplay(n = 11, type = "twoway", name = "K1")

## End(Not run)
## Allowing interpolation 11 colours can be generated, although not recommended
thlColorsDisplay(n = c(1,3,5,7,9,11), type = "twoway", name = "K1", allow.interpolation = TRUE)
