W3Colorpicker v3.06b (W3-integrated tooltip editor)

Submitted by kleinerhauck
This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
Homepage: www.christopherhauck.de

Hint: The only change made in 3.06b is that the default language is set to english now.

The program at least works on Win XP, Win Vista and Windows 7, but should also run on other Windows versions.

Description:
This program is a colorpicker, gradient creator, resolution changer and tooltip creator in one.
It also can save colors and is "minimizeable" (see screenshots on my HP) which makes it very useful when working with W3 or graphic programs.
(The program is displayed as small sidebar then)

Features:
- Language can be set to English and German
- RBG- Hexadecimal- and HTML-values
- Pick colors from a scheme or directly from your screen
- Tray icon instead of taskbar entry
- Minimizeable --> can be used in combination with other graphic programs like photoshop to remember colors
- You can easily save your favorite colors to use them throughout your map or your homepage
- Automatically colors or gradient-colors your texts with up to 3 different colors.
Also works for BB Code! :-)
- Can automatically check the program version. (If there is a new one, you can download it with 1 click)
- You can create links to maps, websites, folders, ... in the popup menu and change the resolution of the WarCraft III window (and start WarCraft in windowed mode)
- Cointains a damage calculator (sppears automatically when editing the damage values of a unit)
- The program contains a comfortable tooltip creator with instant preview. rich edit and saveable presets!
NEW!!! The integrated tooltip editor can replace the standard WarCraft dialog for string-editing!!!

More Screenshots here: http://www.christopherhauck.de/f2_colorp.php
(Click on the british flag in the top right corner to change language to English)

Enjoy!

    Thanks for the feedback :)

    In the meantime I added another feature:
    You can add links to the popup menu, for example the maps u edit often, the WarCraft 3 maps folder, links to websites..

    Btw: If u want to make the program start on windows startup, create a link in the autostart folder, don't put the whole file there.
    (Because otherwise windows will start the ini file, too)

    I guess the useful things are:
    -save colors (program was originally made for this reason)
    -gradient-coloring texts (i never use it but many people do)
    -links to frequently used files

    Have you never "colored" text in the W3 map editor?
    Like |cffxxxxxxText|r... That's usually used in tooltips.
    And that's what the tool is supporting, like many other tools in this section.
    ("Text Markup / Colors")
    With the difference that it can save colors, add links, be "minimized" and doesn't **** around ;-)
    (I once downloaded a color program i couldn't close because there were new windows and messages each time i closed one lol)

    Not yet. I currently have no time to program.

    But it's easy to change the prefix for the color code from "|cff" to "#" (HTML) so maybe i will add that option within the next weeks.

    I've also planned to add a tooltip-creator..
    Then you could write a text and color it like in Word or sth. and get a w3 string as output.
