Add custom color support for colour picker dialogs

Post by ckv » Sun Jan 11, 2009 3:45 pm

Often overlooked feature in ChooseColor() common dialog box is the support for 16 custom colors. Currently XnView doesn't preserve the list of custom colors between using the colour picker dialog.

Keeping the custom colors would particularly useful in Batch Processing where seting the same custom color for many tools might be necessary.

XnView could keep one global custom color list for all colour picker dialogs or different lists e.g. Batch Processing, tools in View/edit mode, Edit palette dialog, Options dialog for Xnview own colors...

Support+ for the global (that is global within XnView) custom color retention schema.

Yes I too think that one global list enough, though I'm happy if just Batch Processing gets this feature. :mrgreen:

Just to make clear, I don't mean that XnView necessarily should store the custom color list between runs (in settings). Just keeping the list in merory for single "session" is enough.

Yes many tools already keeps the colors and they are even saved in settings. :o

These tools tools are missing the custom colors: In Batch Processing \ Sequence Convert (all tool colour pickers), Create Contact Sheet dialog, Edit palette dialog, Rotate dialog. There might be more, but these I could find with quick check.
