+ Color Browser

This plugin allows you to see colors used in Java code and CSS/HTML files. You
may also picks colors and insert one of several representations of that color
in the current editor.

++ Installation

Use IDEA\'s plugin manager to install the latest version of the plugin.

++ User Interface

Simply open the Color Browser tool window to begin using the plugin. The
interface includes a color chooser with several methods of picking a color.
For each of the three supported color types there is an \"Insert -->\" button and
a drop down list. The drop down list contains all the supported color
representations for that type. As a color is selected the text within each
drop down list is updated. Pressing the \"Insert -->\" button places the
corresponding text into the editor. If the cursor is currently within the text
of a supported color representation the text is replaced with the new color.
Otherwise the text is simply inserted at the cursor location.

+++ Color Information

In the upper left corner is a large rectangle showing the selected color along
with its RGB, HSB, and HSL representations.

+++ java.awt.Color

There is an \"Insert -->\" button and a drop down list containing all the
supported java.awt.Color constructors. Pick the desired format to insert into
an editor. There is also a button that shows one of the java.awt.Color color
constants. If the selected color doesn\'t have a predefined constants then the
button is disabled.

+++ javax.swing.plaf.ColorUIResource

There is an \"Insert -->\" button and a drop down list containing all the
supported javax.swing.plaf.ColorUIResource constructors. Pick the desired
format to insert into an editor. There is also a button that shows one of the
java.awt.Color color constants. If the selected color doesn\'t have a predefined
constants then the button is disabled.

+++ CSS/HTML Colors

There is an \"Insert -->\" button and a drop down list containing all the
supported CSS/HTML color formats as defined in CSS Level 3. Pick the desired
format to insert into an editor. There is also a button that shows one of the
standard SVG color names. This button is disabled if the selected color doesn\'t
have an associated SVG name.

+++ Cursor

Pressing the Cursor button will look at the text around the cursor in the
current text editor. If the text represents one of the supported color
representations the color will be selected in the tool window.

+++ Color Chooser

The color chooser contain several tabs for selecting a color in different ways.
The current methods are:

* Color Swatches
* HSB (Hue, Saturation, Brightness)
* RBG (Red, Green, Blue)
* HSL (Hue, Saturation, Lightness)
* Hex (Red, Green, Blue)
* SVG Colors (drop down list)
* Java Color Constants (drop down list)

+++ Editors

Pressing and holding down the Ctrl key while moving the mouse cursor around in
an editor will display a hyperlink and information window whenever the cursor
is over any valid color representation in one of the supported formats.

Clicking the left mouse button while a link is displayed will perform the same
function as pressing the Cursor button with the caret in the same location as
the mouse click.

1. (major) it wrongly interprets colors. in css a color of a hex value #f80 is short for #ff8800 (dark orange), not as your plug-in thinks it is #0f0800 which almost black.


2. (minor) file type insensitive. I opened a css file and the plug-in shows options like HSL, HSB, SVG, and Java Colors, all of which doesn't make sense for a css file. why not hide them which reduces the plug-in width.
