Force the output of a tool to use a built in color ramp

Discussion created by jcowell1201 on Apr 3, 2013
Hello everyone,

I am wondering if it is possible to force the output of a tool to use a specific color ramp using python code. I downloaded a tool that automatically creates filled contours from DEM's at intervals that I specify. The code is written to look for a symbology layer to use for the symbology of the output but I am looking for a way to set the symbology to a specific color ramp without using a symbology layer. I have been digging through the forums but have not come across anything that addresses my question directly. Thank you in advance for any information you have.
