Show calendar, category & priority colors in event dialogue

Postby enigmatic_user » Sat Feb 05, 2011 10:08 pm

I guess that choosing the right calendar, category and priority for an event could be done faster when their colors were shown in the dropdown lists in the event dialogue. Okay, it probably wouldn't look better than now ;), but in my eyes the usability is more important than the appearance. Which doesn't mean that the usability of VueMinder Calendar is bad - but very few things are so good that they couldn't be made better... ;)

Cheers,
Jan

Hi Jan, your suggestion has been implemented for the next version (8.1.2). The Calendar, Category, Priority, and Location drop-down lists will show the associated colors/fonts. The colors are only shown in the drop-down list because I feel it would make the window too busy otherwise.

If you'd like an early look, a release-candidate beta can be downloaded here.

Thanks again for the suggestion!

That's even better - I didn't know if it's easy to show the colors in the expanded state of the dropdown list, but not in the normal view.
