Parses a textual representation of a color, filling in the red, green, blue and alpha fields of the rgba GdkRGBA.

Where “r”, “g”, “b” and “a” are respectively the red, green, blue and alpha color values. In the last two cases, “r”, “g”, and “b” are either integers in the range 0 to 255 or percentage values in the range 0% to 100%, and a is a floating point value in the range 0 to 1.
