Subject [jira] [Reopened] (PIVOT-689) Finishing touches on Skin Colors
Date Mon, 28 Oct 2013 17:54:42 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-689?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Roger Whitcomb reopened PIVOT-689:

Just wanted to suggest that we could add a few more color-related (abstract) methods to Theme.java
so that "setDarkColor" and some other things that currently exist only in TerraTheme.java
could be called via a generic "Theme" object (so that the example code can be generic).

Reopening the issue for this.

>            Assignee: Sandro Martini
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 2.1
>         Attachments: pivot689.patch
> Finishing touches on Skin Colors, some info here (and  more later here in JIRA): https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-579
> See if even the final part of this (not implemented) could be useful: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-245
> 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).
