KnownColorPicker Control

This element is the one more control from the ColorPicker constituent controls bug in addition to the published in my recent posts.

The KnownColorPicker control is designed as the tool to select the Color from the set of predefined colors. It’s the very simple User Control and is developed as the separate entity to encapsulate the predefined color sets initialization code and ListBox and ComboBox controls templates.

The KnownColorPicker control has two sets of predefined colors. The first one contains 64 colors which we can see in the Windows Common Color Dialog. This set is labeled as "Base Colors" and is presented in the ListBox at the top. The second one contains all the colors defined in the Windows.System.Windows.Media.Colors class. This set is labeled as "All WellKnown Colors" and is presented in the ComboBox at the bottom.

That is the sample:

At the figure above the Bisque border is given to the KnownColorPicker control just to make it distinctive.

The KnownColorPicker has the SelectedColor Dependency Property used to get or set the value of the Color selected. When the SelectedColor changes the KnownColorPicker raises the SelectedColorChanged event.

The code

You can download the code and the samples here:

The archive contains my WPFGears library with samples, tests, etc. It’s the Visual Studio 2008 SP1 solution targeted to .NET Framework 3.5.

You’ll find KnownColorPickerSample project there. KnownColorPicker control code is in the WPFGears library project ColorPickerControls folder.

About ovpwp

I am engaged in programming, maintenance and supply of computing technique since 1970. Started with the computers M, BESM, Minsk series and received appropriate education in the least, in which it was then possible in THE USSR. Then he went the usual way - ES series, IBM 360/370, Sun Spark, Ibm Power & PS2, PC. Programming started in the code (machine commands), then were sorts of assemblers, Algol, FORTRAN, PL/1, C, C , VB, C#. It is only the ones that I used the production scale; but there were, of course, others like List, Modula, Pascal, Java, etc. Currently I prefer .NET platform for desktop development. I don't really like web-programming (probably because of the inability for quality design), but I have enough experience in site building in LAMP environment using PHP.
