Prima::ColorDialog - standard color selection facilities



        use Prima qw(StdDlg Application);

        my $p = Prima::ColorDialog-> create(
                quality => 1,
        printf "color: %06x", $p-> value if $p-> execute == mb::OK;


The module contains two packages, Prima::ColorDialog and Prima::ColorComboBox, used as standard tools for interactive color selection. Prima::ColorComboBox is a modified combo widget, which provides selecting from predefined palette but also can invoke Prima::ColorDialog window.



quality BOOLEAN Used to increase visual quality of the dialog if run on paletted displays.

Default value: 0

value COLOR Selects the color, represented by the color wheel and other dialog controls.

Default value: cl::White


hsv2rgb HUE, SATURATION, LUMINOSITY Converts color from HSV to RGB format and returns three integer values, red, green, and blue components.
rgb2hsv RED, GREEN, BLUE Converts color from RGB to HSV format and returns three numerical values, hue, saturation, and luminosity components.
rgb2value RED, GREEN, BLUE Combines separate channels into single 24-bit RGB value and returns the result.
value2rgb COLOR Splits 24-bit RGB value into three channels, red, green, and blue and returns three integer values.
xy2hs X, Y, RADIUS Maps X and Y coordinate values onto a color wheel with RADIUS in pixels. The code uses RADIUS = 119 for mouse position coordinate mapping. Returns three values, - hue, saturation and error flag. If error flag is set, the conversion has failed.
hs2xy HUE, SATURATION Maps hue and saturation onto 256-pixel wide color wheel, and returns X and Y coordinates of the corresponding point.
create_wheel SHADES, BACK_COLOR Creates a color wheel with number of SHADES given, drawn on a BACK_COLOR background, and returns a Prima::DeviceBitmap object.
create_wheel_shape SHADES Creates a circular 1-bit mask, with radius derived from SHAPES. SHAPES must be same as passed to create_wheel. Returns Prima::Image object.


BeginDragColor $PROPERTY Called when the user starts dragginh a color from the color wheel by with left mouse button and combination of Alt, Ctrl, and Shift keys. $PROPERTY is one of Prima::Widget color properties, and depends on combination of keys:

        Alt              backColor

EndDragColor $PROPERTY, $WIDGET Called when the user releases the mouse drag over a Prima widget. Default action sets $WIDGET->$PROPERTY to the current color value.


$colorWheel Contains cached result of create_wheel call.
$colorWheelShape Contains cached result of create_wheel_shape call.



Colorify INDEX, COLOR_PTR nt::Action callback, designed to map combo palette index into a RGB color. INDEX is an integer from 0 to colors - 1, COLOR_PTR is a reference to a result scalar, where the notification is expected to write the resulting color.


colors INTEGER Defines amount of colors in the fixed palette of the combo box.
value COLOR Contains the color selection as 24-bit integer value.
