Description Theofanis Oikonomou 2012-04-23 16:35:09 UTC
Color pickers (the controls in tabs, not the actual color picking dialogs) are not unified across various panels in Options dialog. See Misc->Terminal vs. Misc->GUIBuilder vs. tabs under Fonts&Colors.

Currently, modules (terminal, versioning) that want to have the same unified look have to copy several classes, such as ColorValue, ColorComboBox and ColorComboBoxRenderer, from options.editor module in order to use the color picker defined in options.editor/o.n.m.options.colors

This is because of the dependency between options.editor and other editor related modules. Someone should not have to add a dependency on editor to use the color picker.

This would have a great impact on improving Options dialog look. Thank you
