The standard RGB color picker is just not enough for real application development.  It would be better if the color schemes for an application can be stored in the application itself.  Then, when developing, the stored colors in the database are the ones that can be picked easily (not the ones you stored last, like it is now).

or at the very least be able to copy and paste colour values!

Custom colors are stored in your ini file - see here:

and worth checking out:
{ Link } for a possible application specific solution.

Hi Mark,

I know, I did some research before posting this :-). I like the idea that is in SuperNTF, but I would prefer it to be a separate database.
Also, I have some ideas on what could be added as extra features.
One day... ;-)

Since the topic is better color management, I would also add the following features:
Ability to compute table background colors
Ability to compute value background color in view, in other words set background color of column value based on conditions

Hi Basir,
Computed colors are possible for columns, no? And with css it should be possible to adjust background colors of tables too, I guess (but I never really tested it).
