This page documents a user-defined function that you can copy and paste into your addon. Replace <PREFIX> with your AddOn's prefix to avoid conflicts between different versions of these functions.
User defined functions < ColorGradient

Converts a percent value into a gradient from 2 or more RGB percent values (0.0-1.0). If more than 2 colors are passed, the gradient will be between the two colors which perc lies in an evenly divided range.

(Note that if you will always be generating a gradient between the same number of colors, you will see *significantly* greater performance if you customize this function to take a fixed number of arguments.)

local function ColorGradient(perc, ...)
	if perc >= 1 then
		local r, g, b = select(select('#', ...) - 2, ...)
		return r, g, b
	elseif perc <= 0 then
		local r, g, b = ...
		return r, g, b
	local num = select('#', ...) / 3

	local segment, relperc = math.modf(perc*(num-1))
	local r1, g1, b1, r2, g2, b2 = select((segment*3)+1, ...)

	return r1 + (r2-r1)*relperc, g1 + (g2-g1)*relperc, b1 + (b2-b1)*relperc

Example Edit

For this example we'll use 3 colors: red, yellow and green. For a percent value of 0.75 we'd expect to get back a color that's halfway between yellow and green. 0.5 would yield pure yellow, 0.25 would yield an orange.

local r,g,b = ColorGradient(0.75, 1,0,0, 1,1,0, 0,1,0)
-- r = 0.5, g = 1.0, b = 0.0
