Color Picker Plus

ColorPickerPlus hooks into the standard Color Picker to provide

  • text entry for colors (RGB and hex values),
  • text entry for the alpha value (transparency/opacity),
  • copy and paste of a single color,
  • a movable frame,
  • a color swatch for the color that you will be replacing
  • a color swatch for the copied color that may be pasted.

With these enhancements, you can precisely describe a color and coordinate colors within and between add-ons.

A shift-click on the Copy button will paste the decimal RGB values for the chosen color into the chat window. This was added as a utility for add-on developers.

    The ColorPickerPlus doesn't change the main file, just hooks on some additional functionality. If you uninstall the add-on, what you're seeing is pure Blizzard. ColorPickerPlus does enlarge the standard ColorPicker to make room for the additional text fields and buttons, and makes the dialog movable when you press and drag in the title tab. You might try dragging it using the title tab to see if you can position it to a better place.

    Well, I also forgot to mention I have changed to a monitor that isn't as wide as when i first installed the addon.

    But I just found a file that may be what I need to edit to get it back to proper size. I''' post back shortly.

    I have a glitch that i just noticed - i don't use the color-selection pop-up much so not sure when it messed up.

    When I open up something like background coloring for chat widows/boxes I get all the options that ColorPickerPlus offers but my OK and Cancel buttons are either missing or off screen - not sure which.

    But when I go to move the color-picker box it just stretches from the right-hand side (it goes off-screen that way). It doesn't have an edge to it.

    Well, I disabled the addon but still have the issues. How do you undue the changes this addon did? I assume ti edits a main file right?

    Thanks in advanced.
