Color Picker everywhere...
« on: October 28, 2014, 03:58:25 pm »
Hello everybody.

I'm glad to present you Color_Picker  ;)

Color_Picker is a tool for managing the colors.
You may get the pixel-color of any part of he screen, compare it, get the hex code of the selected color and much more...
 
Color_Picker uses the fpGUI widgetset and was highly inspired by ColorWheel fpGUI demo. =>
https://github.com/graemeg/fpgui/tree/develop

Download Color_Picker  there =>
https://github.com/fredvs/color_picker

Here a video of Color_Picker in action and how to use the picker. =>

In /bin there are compiled executable for Win32/Win64/Linux32/Linux64/freeBSD64.

Have fun.  :)

@ Never => thanks to test it  ;)

To use the everywhere-color-picker, click on the Picker button maintaining the left-mouse-button pressed.

Then go where you want to get the color-pixel-screen (with the mouse-button still pressed).

Release the button where you want the color => you will get the pixel-color  ;)

If you enable "Continuous", you will get every pixel_color you go...

Are you sure you maintained the mouse-button clicked ?

Hum, i do not understand why it does not work for you.

Maybe somebody else could try it and give his result.  :-[

Only to be sure :

- Click on the Picker button and do not release the button pressed.,

- Travel with your mouse somewhere on the screen (with button still down).

- Release the button on pixel-color you want => you must get the color.

No, on pure Windows OS. I have tested on Wine-Linux too.

Tested on 64-bit Win7 system. Works fine here.

The only thing I can comment in is that the tooltop over the "Picker" button appears over the picker button, so when you sometimes click you are actually clicking the tooltip window not the button. Wiggle the mouse and the tooltip disappears. Then clicking the button and picking a color works just fine. I tested on all areas of my desktop.
