All right, it looks like I have another challenge on my hands.
I’m adding an options screen to my HMI in which the user can choose virtually any color to represent a state (empty, failed, etc.). Currently, I’m using a dropdown component containing a list of all colors with names (AliceBlue, AntiqueWhite, etc.).
I think users would prefer to see actual colors rather than names alone, but I don’t know how to display both labels and colors in a dropdown list. I could use color mapping, but there are so many colors to choose from that this seems too impractical.
I suppose I could ask for RGB integers instead, but that could be too confusing.
Is there another way to do this, or should I not use a dropdown list?
