(OpenCV) Hue Histogram drawing and get value of RGB and bin count (example source code using calcHist in openCV)

This histogram drawing source code is referenced Sample code of CAMshift in opencv.

We usually use hue color in hsv to get color distribution, because hue is a little bit free from lighting than RGB model.

The source code is example of drawing rgb graph from hue histogram.

I try to drawing color graph from 2 channel histogram, for example hue, saturation, but I failed, I don't know that is impossible or not.

But 1 channel is possible, refer to this source code and fiagure.

If you want to know how to get histogram, refer to this page.

Thank you.
