Set Histogram To RGB

By default, the Histogram panel defaults to Colors and I was wondering if anyone knew how to set the default value to RGB or how to change this via scripting

@r-bin , please forgive the intrusion, but do you know if this can be set via Script?

It used to be "RGB" by default, many versions ago. A remnant of this still sticks:

 

When you open a file it's set to "Colors", but if you click a single channel and then go back to RGB, it reverts to "RGB" mode and stays there.

 

So actually, all you need is an action to target, say, the red channel, and then back to RGB. Voila, the histogram is in RGB mode.

 

Personally I want "Colors" to see each channel, so this has been a (minor) annoyance for a long time.

Nifty! 

I hadn’t noticed that. 

And as selecting the Red Channel and the Composite Channel can be recorded in an Action one should be able to assign such an Action to the Open Event with Script Events Manager.
