Color Schemes Dialog Box (X Manager)

Getting there

From this dialog box you can view and change the colors in a color scheme. You can select another scheme, create a new scheme, or import a scheme from a color map file. You can also edit any of the colors in a scheme, or create a new color for a scheme.

Note: When you import or save schemes, they are saved in your personal settings. These "personal" color schemes are available to you the next time you log on to Reflection X.

Available Color Schemes

 

Select scheme

Select a personal color scheme. This list includes the default color scheme and schemes that you have imported or created and saved.

Import

Opens the Import Color Scheme dialog box, from which you can import an existing RGB color text file to create a new color scheme.

Clone

Copy the current color scheme. In X Manager for Domains, if you copy a public definition that is read-only, you can edit the copy.

 

Scheme name

The name of the color scheme definition. Use the one provided, or enter your own.

 

Colors in scheme

Displays the entries in the RGB color scheme in a two-column table. The first column shows how the color appears on your display; the second shows the name of the color.

Note: Many of the colors have two names: a single name with mixed case (for example, ForestGreen), and another in all lowercase (for example, forest green). Both names are included because X clients might request the color by either name.

 

+ and controls

Add or remove colors from the scheme.

 

Color column sorts by

Specify the way you want the Color column to sort: by hue (the default), saturation, or brightness.

 

HSB

Displays hue, saturation, and brightness (HSB) values for the color selected in the Color column. Use the slider on the HSB tab to change the HSB values of the selected color.

Note: The HSB slider is not displayed for default color schemes because these schemes cannot be modified.

 

RGB

Displays the red, green, and blue (RGB) values for the color selected in the Color column. Use the sliders on the RGB tab to change the RGB values of the selected color.

Note: The RGB slider is not displayed for default color schemes because these schemes cannot be modified.

 

Preview

Shows how the color selected in the Color column will appear.
