Comments

The Customize Palette dialog.

This dialog has the following fields:

Palettes List:

The Palette List provides you with some standard palettes:

If you pass a palette to the dialog the "Image Colors" item is added to the palette list to view the current colors in the passed palette.

Left Pane

The Left Pane of the Customize Palette dialog displays the colors that you can add to your palette. This pane is not editable and it has two modes of display; it either displays lists of individual colors (palettes), or continuous colors based on a particular color model. When displaying palettes, you can select multiple individual colors using the <Ctrl> key, and a range of consecutive colors using the <Shift> key.

Right Pane

The Right Pane of the Customize Palette displays the list of colors that you have chosen. (It is empty until you begin to choose colors). After selecting a single color or a group of colors in the left pane, you can add them to your list of chosen colors in the right pane by clicking the Add button or by dragging them into the right pane. You can re-arrange the colors in the right pane by clicking and dragging them to their new position, or by using one of the pre-defined sort methods listed in the Sort drop-down list box.

Color Value Display

The RGB components and corresponding HTML form of the currently selected color are displayed at the bottom of the dialog.

Color Model Button

The Color Model button will list the color models available for the left pane and can switch the display mode in the left pane.

Clicking this button will activate a menu with the following options:

Replace Button

The Replace button replaces a number of selected items in the Right pane with the same number and order of selected items from the Left pane.

Add and Add Options

The Add button adds an item or a group of items selected in the Left pane into the Right pane. Items can also be added from the Left pane to the Right pane by dragging them. Notice that the mouse cursor changes into a hand image\HandClosed.gif when dragging item(s). If the cursor is not in a valid insert area, the cursor will turn into image\PalEdit_Stop.gif.

The Add Options button (the down arrow button to the right of the Add button) activates a menu that contains options indicating where those items should be added. The default is "At the end". The options included in this menu are as follows:

Note:

Remove and Remove Options

The Remove button removes the selected item(s) from the Right Pane. Items can also be removed by dragging them out of the Right Pane. Notice that the mouse cursor changes into image\PalEdit_Trash.gif to indicate the item is about to be deleted.

The Remove Options button (the down arrow button to the right of the Remove button) activates a menu that allows you to set whether to be notified by a warning message when an item is about to be removed. The options included in this menu are as follows:

Confirm

When this option is checked a confirmation message will appear whenever you remove an item.

Find Closest Button

The Find Closest button highlights the item in the Right Pane that is the closest match to the item selected in the Left Pane. This button is displayed only if the DLG_CUSTOMIZEPALETTE_SHOW_FINDCLOSEST flag is passed through the CUSTOMIZEPALETTEDLGPARM structure.

Sort

The Sort button allows you to choose a method for sorting items in the right pane depending on their color components. Clicking the button will activate a menu with the following options:

Apply When Exit Check box

When you pass the DLG_CUSTOMIZEPALETTE_GENERATE_PALETTE flag, you can prompt the user to use the palette generated or not by using the DLG_CUSTOMIZEPALETTE_SHOW_APPLYPALETTEWHENEXIT flag which shows/hides the Apply When Exit checkbox.

New

Use the New button to empty the Right Pane. This button is displayed only if the DLG_CUSTOMIZEPALETTE_SHOW_NEW flag is passed through the CUSTOMIZEPALETTEDLGPARM structure.

Open

Use the Open button to open a previously saved palette file; palette files have the extension "ltp". This button is displayed only if the DLG_CUSTOMIZEPALETTE_SHOW_OPEN flag is passed through the CUSTOMIZEPALETTEDLGPARM structure.

Save

Use the Save button to save your palette. If you are starting a new file, the save command will prompt you for the file location and name. This button is displayed only if the DLG_CUSTOMIZEPALETTE_SHOW_SAVE flag is passed through the CUSTOMIZEPALETTEDLGPARM structure.

Save as

Use the Save as command to save a palette to a new filename. If you are starting a new file, the save command will prompt you for the file location and name. This button is displayed only if the DLG_CUSTOMIZEPALETTE_SHOW_SAVEAS flag is passed through the CUSTOMIZEPALETTEDLGPARM structure.

Close

Use the Close button to end the dialog. If there are changes unsaved on the Right Pane, a prompt message will appear.
