This software aims to fix the problem when an IDE does not have a color mixer, or has, but only the Windows's default one, or you not using any IDE at all, just writing code in Notepad++. This one is inspired by Adobe software's excellent color mixer, and I also added some more: you can sample color from anywhere on the screen.
Supported color formats:
- RGB (8-bit per channel)
- Integer (with red at the most significant address)
- Float (each channel between 0 and 1)
There are 3 dimensions for color mixing, the first two can be set on the square field, the third on the vertical slider.
The color channel shown on the vertical slider can be changed by checking the fields on the right.
Colors can be set or get in HSB, RGB, hexadecimal, integer or float format. There is also an option on the top menu to copy all three values at once, formatted to be ready to use in your C++ code.
To sample a color from the screen, press (or hold) the Shift + Ctrl buttons (It won't work on hardware accelerated content, like video players or 3D applications). This function can be completely disabled from the Settings menu.
The border around the color sample on the top right can be changed from the Settings menu to either black or white, or to any color currently selected.
