Why can not change the text color in the tooltip ?

Postby 0xaa55 » Wed Jul 19, 2017 00:59

Hi,
I added some code in cegui-0.8.7\samples\DragDropDemo\Sample_DragDropDemo.cpp : bool DragDropDemo::initialise(CEGUI::GUIContext* guiContext)

Code: Select all

bool DragDropDemo::initialise(CEGUI::GUIContext* guiContext)
{
    using namespace CEGUI;

    d_guiContext = guiContext;
    d_usedFiles = CEGUI::String(__FILE__);

    // load windows look
    SchemeManager::getSingleton().createFromFile("WindowsLook.scheme");

    // load font and setup default if not loaded via scheme
    Font& defaultFont = FontManager::getSingleton().createFromFile("DejaVuSans-12.font");
    // Set default font for the gui context
    guiContext->setDefaultFont(&defaultFont);

    // set up defaults
    guiContext->getMouseCursor().setDefaultImage("WindowsLook/MouseArrow");

   //
   guiContext->setDefaultTooltipType("WindowsLook/Tooltip");


    // load the drive icons imageset
    ImageManager::getSingleton().loadImageset("DriveIcons.imageset");

    // load the initial layout
    guiContext->setRootWindow(
        WindowManager::getSingleton().loadLayoutFromFile("DragDropDemo.layout"));

    //Here is the code I added
    //****************************************************************************************************
   Window* DragContainer2 = d_guiContext->getRootWindow()->getChild("MainWindow/Slot6/DragContainer2");
   
   std::stringstream ssTooltip;
   ssTooltip
      << "[colour='FF0000FF']" << "axe" << std::endl
      << "------------------------" << std::endl
      << "[top-padding='0'][bottom-padding='0'][colour='FF00FFFF']" << "This is a very sharp ax." << std::endl
      << "------------------------" << std::endl
      << "Tech Level: " << "123" << std::endl
      << "------------------------" << std::endl;

      DragContainer2->setTooltipText(ssTooltip.str());
    //****************************************************************************************************   

    // setup events
    subscribeEvents();

    // success!
    return true;
}

All the text does not change the color.

Just change the style of the tooltip to whatever you want. The tooltip has a look n' feel. You can edit it to be whatever you want there. Try to look at other look n' feels to get ideas of how to change colours etc.
