PUI colored text in buttons

Postby onox » Thu Jan 22, 2015 7:28 pm

I'm trying to get colored text in PUI (XML) in buttons. If I add <color> to a <button> it changes the background color, which is not what I want. Someone know how to get colored text in a button?

See $FG_ROOT/Docs/README.gui which documents the whole thing, and refer to $FG_ROOT/gui/dialogs for examples.

I have already read README.gui but it does not (clearly) describe how to change the color of the text (legend) of a button. And I cannot find any examples in FG that have buttons with colored text :(

Of course I could replace the whole panel with a Canvas window but I do not have any SVG editing skills with Inkscape.

well, line 600+ seems to be describing exactly what you're looking for, no ?
(sorry, cannot run FG at the moment, and with the wiki being offline, I cannot really post anything useful beyond just pointers ...)

if you just need an existing widet, like a button, we already have those in $FG_ROOT/Nasal/canvas/gui/widgets

then again, I am also not sure if it's worth the hassle - it really depends on your use case I guess ?

That only seems to describe how to change the color of the text of all buttons in the GUI.

Canvas doesn't have enough widgets I'm afraid.
