Hello Martijn,

The vtkPolyDataConnectivityFilter provides a simple way to assign
colors to regional rings. I hope the attached example will help you.
Also here are the examples for reference.

> However, the cells of the polydata are polygons, not lines.
> Some background information:
> First I read polygons from a file. Each polygon consists of an exterior ring
> and zero or more interior rings.
> I construct a vtkPolyData with these rings as lines and use
> vtkContourTriangulator to form the polygons.
> vtkContourTriangulator returns a vtkPolyData with polygons ofcourse.
> Afterwards I want to assign a color only to those lines that constitute the
> interior and exterior rings, not the lines that make up the triangulation.
