I want to create a line of colored pixels whose colours I can individually
set to be rendered out of a pdf file according to the sRGB standard, where I
define the color of each pixel as three integers 0 to 255 (R,G and B) and
the line extends to the right of some starting point whose coordinates I can
specify in some manner. The line is a string of colors defined as a linear
array of colors. Really, I'm going to want a series of such lines all the
same and all running next to each other to make a horizontal band of color
that does not vary in the vertical direction. Pardon me if I'm not saying
this correctly to account for pixel geometry.

I want to have this array of pixels backed up by a surrounding rectangular
background of uniform colour where I can reset this background to any colour
I care to specify in the sRGB color space, defining the color as three
integers 0 to 255 (R, G, and B). Lets say I vary the 3 integers using
buttons superimposed on the background.

Anyone care to offer some instruction? I'm an old programmer who has never
done anything in JavaScript and I'd like to cut to the chase with a splotch
of code for the above case. If you'd like to be paid to do this, then
perhaps I'll make the application slightly more complicated to bring it
closer to what I really want to do. Or maybe I'll keep it as stated, to keep
the price down!!
