Color selection

The color palettes window is used to select colors in the PROMOTIC system (in Panel editor in item colour configurators, in Aplication editor in Colors of alarm states configurators).

The color is represented by a string #rrggbb, see RGB String, working with colors. The only exception is the usage of custom colors in the Panel editor (the resulting color is represented by the defcolorN string), see the next paragraph.

The color palettes window may consist of three color setting options:
1) Selection of the desired color from the preset color palette in the section PROMOTIC colors. If the transparency of the current graphic item is supported, then the transparent color can be selected (the button with the cross), resulting in the transparent color of the selected graphic item.
2) Selection from the full OS Windows color palette, in the Windows color section.
3) Selection from the custom preset colors in the section Custom defined colors. If the custom defined color is selected in the panel editor environment, then the selected color has system name defcolorN, where N is the numerical order of the color (starting with zero). If the color is used in multiple graphic items, for example defcolor2 (first row, third column), then changing the settings of this color (using the button Color setting) result in the change of the color in all graphic items using this color.
