Get() returns one number in RGB mode?

Hello everyone.

I do not understand why get does not return R, G, B values instead of 1 single signed number. I am trying to get the background color and then create a rect() with the same color (fill(R,G,B)) as the background. My code is:

int backgroundColor;
void setup()
  size(displayWidth, displayHeight);
  backgroundColor=get((int)displayWidth/2, (int)displayHeight/2);
void draw()
  rect(displayWidth/2,)displayHeight/2, displayWidth*0.6, )displayHeight*0.6)

Could you please help to get the RGB values correctly??

The documentation may seem a bit obscure color is not a datatype at all, the processing pre-processor converts color to a signed int. There are convenience methods red(value), green(value), blue(value), that extract those values from the signed int.

could you set your color values to variable and use the same variables on your RECT as your BACKGROUND?
