LabVIEW Color Palette

Status: New

Give us the option to input a Hex RGB code in the color palette.LabVIEW Color Palette.png


That might be the OS's fault- On the Mac, the "More Colors..." button pops an OS-supplied colour picker, that lets you switch between HSL/ RGB/ Websafe/ CMYK/ Colourwheel/ spectrum/ image/ crayons/ optional plugins.......

It should be pointed out that the RGB option is there, but it's in decimal, not hex. Personally, I don't select specific custom colors that often, so I can't say I feel the need, and with Tom's comment, it seems like this is an OS specific dialog, so it may not even be possible without writing a custom dialog.

Try to take over the world!

How about a more general idea? NI could use develop something like Color Selector 3.0 to replace the OS one by a more programming oriented type.

Yes! I'm creating an entire palette of custom controls right now, and converting between the hex used in the design spec and decimal is a massive pain in the butt.
