The WPF controls in this library can be used to pick and display standard WPF colors including the transparency channel definition.

This project supplies MVVM/WPF colorpicker controls that can be used to implement

  • RGB (Red, Green, Blue) channels or
  • HSV (Hue, Saturation, Value) channels
  • Additional transparency/opacity (A) channel

The controls are available with

  • Generics Theme (no custom theme just operating system styles and colors)
  • and modern Dark/Light Defintions that should be useful for most modern themes (MUI, Mahapps.Metro, MLib etc)

The numeric up/down control used in this project supports editing values through multiple input channels:

  • by dragging the mouse vertically/horizontally or
  • by clicking up/down arrow (repeat) buttons or
  • up/down or left right cursor keys or
  • spinning mousewheel up down on mouseover or
  • editing a textbox
