[SOLVED]problem about format tags

Postby lixinyiabc123 » Mon Dec 26, 2011 07:10

Hi~
I'm new in using CEGUI and need some helps.
I find format tags don't work with OgreTray skin or some other skins.
The color of Button2 does not change to green with the format code [colour='FF00FF00']Button2
Thank you for help!!! :D

Code: Select all

<GUILayout >
    <Window Type="DefaultWindow" Name="Root" >
        <Property Name="UnifiedAreaRect" Value="{{0,0},{0,0},{1,0},{1,0}}" />
        <Window Type="TaharezLook/Button" Name="Root/bt1" >
            <Property Name="Text" Value="[colour=&apos;FF00FF00&apos;]Button1" />
            <Property Name="UnifiedAreaRect" Value="{{0.0554906,0},{0.0943486,0},{0.305491,0},{0.344348,0}}" />
        </Window>
        <Window Type="OgreTray/Button" Name="Root/bt2" >
            <Property Name="Text" Value="[colour=&apos;FF00FF00&apos;]Button2" />
            <Property Name="UnifiedAreaRect" Value="{{0.0620791,0},{0.380063,0},{0.312079,0},{0.630063,0}}" />
        </Window>
        <Window Type="Vanilla/Button" Name="Root/bt3" >
            <Property Name="Text" Value="[colour=&apos;FF00FF00&apos;]Button3" />
            <Property Name="UnifiedAreaRect" Value="{{0.058126,0},{0.679435,0},{0.308126,0},{0.929435,0}}" />
        </Window>
    </Window>
</GUILayout>

What if you set the buttons' "NormalTextColour" (OgreTray) to FFFFFFFF?

Thank you very much, the format tag works when i modify OgreTray.looknfeel file. :)
but are there existing some other methods to change text colour without modifying *.looknfeel files ? :?:

I think in this case CEGUI modulates NormalTextColour with the colour from your formatting. If NormalTextColour is black, the result will always be black.

This has previously been discussed, search! Also look how Ember from Worldforge solves this, they have subclassed FormattedTextParser and just put the final colour there, without modulating it.

In addition to Kulik's reply, I'm pretty sure you can set the NormalTextColours property to white on your layout so you don't have to modify the looknfeel.
