CS2 JS Color Picker

Postby Larry Ligon » Wed Apr 26, 2006 9:21 pm

Here is CS2 JavaScript to allow the user to set the foreground color. If you want to change the background color, just replace foreground in the script with background.

Code: Select all
 // Program Name:  Set the foreground color
 //
 // Author:        Larry B. Ligon
 //
 // Purpose:       This JavaScript will allow the user to change the foreground color
 //   

var newColor = new SolidColor;
newColor.rgb.red = 128;
newColor.rgb.green = 128;
newColor.rgb.blue = 128;

app.foregroundColor = newColor ;

var WindowPositionX = 100;
var WindowPositionY = 100;

var WindowWidth = 400;
var WindowHeight = 400;

var bounds = {x:WindowPositionX ,y:WindowPositionX ,width:WindowWidth ,height:WindowHeight };

var dlg = new Window('dialog', 'Color Picker' );
//Set the location of the dialog.  Put it near the foreground box in the tools dialog
dlg.frameLocation = [100, 300];

var uiButtonRun = "Run";

var uiButtonNewWindow = "New Window";

dlg.btnRun = dlg.add("button", undefined ,uiButtonRun );
dlg.btnRun.onClick = function() { this.parent.close(0); };
dlg.orientation = 'column';

//Add Red panel
dlg.RedPanel = dlg.add("panel",undefined,"Red");
dlg.RedPanel.alignChildren = "right";
dlg.RedPanel.orientation = 'row';
dlg.RedPanel.sliderRed = dlg.RedPanel.add('scrollbar', undefined, 128, 0, 255);
dlg.RedPanel.sliderRed.preferRedSize = [100,20];
dlg.RedPanel.RedValue = dlg.RedPanel.add('edittext');
dlg.RedPanel.RedValue.preferRedSize = [40,25];
dlg.RedPanel.RedValue.onChange = function (){
   if (!isNaN(dlg.RedPanel.RedValue.value)){
      alert("Red value is not a valid number");}
};
dlg.RedPanel.RedValue.text = Math.round(dlg.RedPanel.sliderRed.value);
dlg.RedPanel.sliderRed.onChanging = function () {
             dlg.RedPanel.RedValue.text = Math.round(dlg.RedPanel.sliderRed.value);
             newColor.rgb.red = Math.round(dlg.RedPanel.RedValue.text);
             newColor.rgb.green = Math.round(dlg.GreenPanel.GreenValue.text);
              newColor.rgb.blue =  Math.round(dlg.BluePanel.BlueValue.text);
              app.foregroundColor = newColor ;
};


//Add Green panel
dlg.GreenPanel = dlg.add("panel",undefined,"Green");
dlg.GreenPanel.alignChildren = "right";
dlg.GreenPanel.orientation = 'row';
dlg.GreenPanel.sliderGreen = dlg.GreenPanel.add('scrollbar', undefined, 128, 0, 255);
dlg.GreenPanel.sliderGreen.preferGreenSize = [100,20];
dlg.GreenPanel.GreenValue = dlg.GreenPanel.add('edittext');
dlg.GreenPanel.GreenValue.preferGreenSize = [40,25];
dlg.GreenPanel.GreenValue.onChange = function (){
   if (isNaN(dlg.GreenPanel.GreenValue.value)){
      alert("Green value is not a valid number");}
};
dlg.GreenPanel.GreenValue.text = Math.round(dlg.GreenPanel.sliderGreen.value);
dlg.GreenPanel.sliderGreen.onChanging = function () {
             dlg.GreenPanel.GreenValue.text = Math.round(dlg.GreenPanel.sliderGreen.value);
             newColor.rgb.red = Math.round(dlg.RedPanel.RedValue.text);
             newColor.rgb.green = Math.round(dlg.GreenPanel.GreenValue.text);
              newColor.rgb.blue =   Math.round(dlg.BluePanel.BlueValue.text);
              app.foregroundColor = newColor ;
};

//Add Blue panel
dlg.BluePanel = dlg.add("panel",undefined,"Blue");
dlg.BluePanel.alignChildren = "right";
dlg.BluePanel.orientation = 'row';
dlg.BluePanel.sliderBlue = dlg.BluePanel.add('scrollbar', undefined, 128, 0, 255);
dlg.BluePanel.sliderBlue.preferBlueSize = [100,20];
dlg.BluePanel.BlueValue = dlg.BluePanel.add('edittext');
dlg.BluePanel.BlueValue.preferBlueSize = [40,25];
dlg.BluePanel.BlueValue.text = Math.round(dlg.BluePanel.sliderBlue.value);
dlg.BluePanel.sliderBlue.onChanging = function () {
             dlg.BluePanel.BlueValue.text = Math.round(dlg.BluePanel.sliderBlue.value);
             newColor.rgb.red = Math.round(dlg.RedPanel.RedValue.text);
             newColor.rgb.green = Math.round(dlg.GreenPanel.GreenValue.text);
              newColor.rgb.blue = Math.round(dlg.BluePanel.BlueValue.text);
              app.foregroundColor = newColor ;
};

dlg.show();


Hope this helps.

Thanks for getting this worked out. This is one of those things that I knew needed to get done but never got around to it.

I'll need to repackage it for my own purposes but I'll post that up when it's done.

Here's my extension of Larry's code. This will let you do things like:

Code: Select all
var c = ColorChooser.run();
if (c) {
   app.foregroundColor = c;
   textitem.color = c;
}


Other extensions could include passing the window title to 'run' or a default color to 'run'.
This would make usage look like:
Code: Select all
app.foregroundColor = ColorChooser.run(app.foregroundColor);
texitem.color = ColorChooser.run(textitem.color);


Here's the script:

Code: Select all
//
// ColorChooser
//
// This script is an extension of Larry Ligon's color picker script.
// I have left as much of his code intact as is possible. I did fix
// one typo, added code to make the text entry fields functional,
// and set it up so that app.foreground is reset after the chooser is closed
//
// Description:
//   This class has one public function ('run') that will open an RGB
//   color selection dialog and return the selected color or 'undefined'
//   if the user canceled the operation.
//
// Usage:
//    var color = ColorChooser.run();
//

Can someone advise what the license/usage is for this script please?

Thanks

For my part, it's free. Technically, I always license my code like this:

Code: Select all
This is Open Software. Use it. Pass it around. Sell it if you want. Just make sure this copyright, license, and contact information go with the software.

Copyright: (c)2006, xbytor
License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/LGPL/2.1

I don't know if Larry has said one way or another how his stuff is classified and since this is almost all his, I'll leave it to him to answer.

Thanks for the clarification. I'll wait to hear from Larry before I include it in my code.

You are free to use any code snippets that I post here.

Just give me credit for any code snippets that you use.

Am I correct in reading from that code that it returns a SolidColor object?

I inserted the code at the end of the script and tried a test call at the beginning, and it is throwing an error for me:

Error 2: ColorChooser is undefined.
Line: 488
-> var c = ColorChooser.run();

Is this CS or CS2 code? And does it rely on anything else? I don't program using objects so it's tough for me to read what is going on, or figure out how to fix it.

For example, this line
ColorChooser = function() {
};

Should this not be

function ColourChooser () {
}

or is the original text doing something I am not aware of?

I also notice in ContactSheetX_!.js that you have a line that simply says

"ColorChooser.jsx"

What is the purpose of that?

Thanks for any help!

Updated for CS3

I've updated the ColorChooser once again, this time to use the ESTK2 color chooser API. I also reworked the code some more for robustness and readability.
