Wordpad background color ideas

Post by Pi_User5 » Fri Dec 12, 2014 5:10 am

I was looking around in Wordpad and found an option to change the background color. It only has two colors and I was looking to improve my coding skills and I was wondering if any one had a color they would like added. I knows it's really trivial and no one would probably not use it. :D If any one is interested in a color, all I would need is the name and the RGB color code. The colors can be accessed by going to "Format" and then to "Background". Thanks!

One of my colour choices would be: Red 0 - Green 39 - Blue 79 (taken from the colour chart within Notepad++, so I would assume 000,039,079 for rgb).

And the sample image:

Thanks! I will edit the code as soon as I can.

Nice color. What name should it be on the color menu. It works but I just need the desired color name.

In Notepad++, the style with this coloured background that I use, is called Ruby Blue, so if you want to call it that, do so , but you could also call it Ros Blue instead. It's up to you!

I called it ReactOS Blue.

New Wordpad executible: http://www.mediafire.com/download/3a4f6 ... 2-2014.exe

I'll generate the patches soon but I want to see if any one else has any new color ideas.

We need Word equivalent, not WordPad in ReactOS. Almost nobody uses WordPad. 85% of users use Word.

Thanks! I plane on adding some new colors tonight. I was thinking of adding a color called Latus black color from the theme in ReactOS. Also, when I make the JIRA report, could I use your image of the ReactOS blue color?

That's true. Maybe someone could start writing a Word clone. I could try but I don't know how far I would get. I would reuse the wordpad code and modify the code. Only problem is I need to know how to add another folder to compile in the base\applications folder.

I also am trying to work on a word equivalent for ReactOS.

No, we do not need a "Word" replacement. That's what Open/LibreOffice is for.

Usage stats tell more than 85% use MS Office along with Windows. Unlike OOo/Libreoffice.org, we should implement a API compatible Word implementation. Ooo is not API compatible.
