NSColorPanelMBS class

Super class: NSPanelMBS

Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
class Cocoa Drawing MBS MacCocoa Plugin 7.2 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: A class to control a Color Panel (floating window).
If you use SelectColor in your application, this color panel will be converted in a dialog which makes this class useless.

You should only have one instance of this class in your application.

If you compile for Cocoa, a TextField/TextArea automatically registers for color panel. So in order to avoid them updating text color with color panel selection, clear the focus by calling window.clearfocus method.

This class does only work on desktop computers, not in a webbrowser.
Subclass of the NSPanelMBS class.
