assign color to button or shape

Got an idea, post it here

assign color to button or shape

Postby CaM on Thu Nov 17, 2011 11:38 am

Hi,

it would be nice if I could assign a color (via its hex form) to a button or a shape within an event.

Thanks

I agree Cameron. I'd like to see that request extended to be able to change all properties of buttons and shapes via events.

I would like to set a number of button and/or shape elements (especially opacity) so i could mimic an Insteon lights dim level.

yeah that would be perfect.. to be able to set a color or change a graphic by what the insteon light level is would be the pro level touch I am looking for.

I had actually submitted this as a Mantis request too. Request 938.

Hopefully Steven or Wes can chime in with their thoughts on how hard this would be to implement? I think it has real value.

Wonderful, thanks Steven!

I kind of hijacked CaM's request to set color via an event though. Is that possible to implement as well?

Shapes have a color value, but buttons don't. You can change the button image already there is a command for that, I could add a command to shape the color of a shape if that's what you want.

Thanks Steven,

Im playing with this now.

I added a circle graphic, a button and text box all with an ID = 'test opacity' and I made them yellow. (just to see what ones the effect will happen on)
I created a couple buttons.. one to set the opacity for 'test opacity' to 20 the other to 222.

When I try both buttons nothing happens?

What am I doing wrong?

you have to use a percentage like 5% or 70% or a variable, new build now shows that.

Yes, please! I could make good use of this function too.

Example showing 7 Buttons that have individual events to set the bulbs opacity value. The menu has a light bulb image thats not illuminated, another image of the same bulb overlayed on top with the exact same x,y coordinates that using the Button Set Opacity event.

Can I tie the opacity level parameter in the event to the slider value variable?

So if my slider variable is %variable>xdimlevel% can I use that for my opacity? I think the answer will be yes but its not working for some reason??

arg sorry guys... just to answer my own question... yes, just add a % at the end. %variable>xdimlevel%

Thats twice that little % got me

Can I pass the button id of the button I mouse click to the button id parameter for the opacity command?
