Subject [jira] [Commented] (PIVOT-689) Finishing touches on Skin Colors
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2014 11:16:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-689?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14113661#comment-14113661

Sandro Martini commented on PIVOT-689:

Another small change proposed: by default we use the font "Verdana 11", but with higher resolutions
etc, what do you think on using "Verdana 12" instead ? I just tried on Windows 7 and the text
seems (a little higher, ok :-) ) better.
But currently I'm not able to make some test in other platforms (even Windows XP), someone
is able to do these check for me ?
Unless objections I can commit this small change so you can test, and if needed we can then
revert ...

Last, under Terra we have some examples of skin configuration files, but I guess if someone
really used these files ... and now (with changes of this issue) they could not be so visually
good; so I'm thinking to move them into our demos subproject, unless objections in a few days.

And maybe add even a new combination derived from Twitter Bootstrap default colors (used in
many sites), could be for Pivot Applications/Applets to better visual integration with them.

Comments ?

> And there was another discussion (I have to find where, in nabble) is change some color
index usage to have better visual appearance (of course retrofitting existing behavior when/if
> Note that probably after these little changes, custom color json files should be a little
> And a little thing on this:
> now only Tooltips doesn't use a palette color (they use an hard-coded color) ... what
do you think to make them use the yellow-ish color at
> palette index 19 (or one of is variants, the 18 or 20) ? And use a similar (yellow-ish
but a different color index, if possible) color on warnings.
> I could adapt a little that color in all Pivot palettes to look similar to what should
be ... tell me.
> For example, someone remember the background color in Swing Tooltips (ok not the best
in graphic design and colors :-) ), but with this little change we could also have this little
feature, where in most palettes will be yellow-ish, but where needed could be different.
> Added some documentation in the Terra package JavaDoc file on color palette usage in
the Terra Skin, to help anyone wants to write their custom colors, and then removed, probably
the best place for this is in a Tutorial.
> Last, in ColorSchemeBuilder (and maybe even in the Kitchen Sink), add some Tooltips to
see how they happen, but see where they makes sense.
> And maybe in ColorSchemeBuilder move some elements in the Tab2 or Tab3, grouping them
by similar components (some componets should be added there).
