Wish :: improved index selection lines in the windows.

17 Jul 2015 15:40

Wish:

Formulation of the task:

Today, when the main window coloring pointer selection process is not always visible, and when switching the operator's attention to the other windows it is necessary to search or reset and re-set selection.

Samples send by KLASS (http://forum.ru-board.com/topic.cgi?for ... rt=2180#12)

Sentence:

Add the left of the first two familiarity of the main window is not cleaned and fixed column Selected by always white background which will be displayed in the form of a symbol mark for instance oily color symbol. And then we can use the same method specified "Set / Not Set" is used in industrial automation systems: selected - character output pointer at the beginning of the line, is not selected - there is a white background.

You are already complaining about it. The behavior you described is from Windows GUI.

The idea with ru-board is taken and at times really difficult to understand who is selected:
KLASS

ru:

Неплохо бы цвет у выделенного\ных процесса\ов сделать настраиваемым.
Например, отмечаю процесс и слежу за разными столбцами, тут почта прилетела... почту глянул, снова к сабжу и... потерял, что выделил, особенно, если он вообще "пропал" из поля зрения. Т.е. цвет какой-то блеклый у выделенного процесса, на иммерсивных процессах его вообще не видно. Может я чего пропустил?

en:

It would be nice color from the selected processes\' s to make customizable.
For example, I note the process and watch the different columns, arrived here almost ... almost looked again to a subject and lost ... that singled out, especially if it is at all "disappeared" from view. Ie some color faded from a dedicated process for immersive process it is absolutely not visible. Maybe I missed something?
I'm her only announced . :)

In this case, we are talking about how to clearly show that the object is selected, regardless of the color of the paint.

In that and a trick. :( At first I thought a little blood can do, looked - comes out. Or, as is done for example in Far Manager - the cursor has a different color, and it is configured individually, which means a person should remember him, or put an additional sign marks the line. The symbol mark seemed the lesser evil of all, and so I offered him.

Other ideas how to solve the problem with the minimum possible impact, I do not see ... :(

I haven't dabbled with C++ or any other hard code but I know from making stuff in AutoIt (BASIC) that you can change the selection color with customdraw

Bump.
Any update on this?
Its literally impossible to tell which line is highlighted on Windows 10 default color-scheme. This makes the "Find window" feature very hard to use.

(in this case its "Interrupts")

The nightly build includes a new setting called TreeListCustomColorsEnable for dark selection colors (e.g. TreeListCustomColorsEnable = 1) :thumbup:
