RECOMMENDED UPDATE:

1. Made the color chart double buffered which should help decrease loading time for color charts (even more with large ones).
2. Improved the load settings function.
3. A few bugs hopefully fixed.

I just wanted to give my thanks (just what I was looking for), and a minor suggestion/bugreport/whatnot..

At the moment it crashes if placed as a subfolder of "program files" (or in my case "program files (x86)" unless the security restrictions of that
folder is lifted (i.e given write access) because it wants to store settings.dat in the program folder.
After a crash it is tagged in appcompat with "disableuserexceptions".
I'm using W7x64.

Removing it from the appcompat list, giving it write permissions, then it runs ok.

I don't write to outside portions (non application folder) to keep the settings from being wrote in other computers directories when you use it from a USB device.  The simple solution is to basically extract programs that don't have installers to a user created folder named My Programs or similar and put extractable applications there for applications that might write to the app folder instead of the users folder.  Guess I should attempt to catch it and make a warning of it though, so thanks for bringing it up.  Thmbsup

STRONGLY RECOMMENDED UPDATE:

1. Color chart previews in built-in and custom color chart menus.
2. Custom color chart menu now creates sub-menu groups.
3. A few menu icon designs has been updated.

@hamradio - thanks very much for this app., so useful and helpful : just one small problem with the latest version - sometimes when I Maximize the main window I can't change the size any more, it's either Maximized or in the Taskbar. I solved this by deleting the settings.dat file, but as I said this doesn't happen every time ...

If you can track down a pattern I will be more than happy to look into why it is doing that as I am not able to get it to reproduce myself, but it still could be there I just may not be doing the right thing to cause it.

Thanks for replying hamradio - I've cracked it : open CW, maximize it, it fills the screen, then reduce it, it goes back to a small window and so on, no problem. Now maximize it and then exit - then open CW again and you'll find that you can't reduce it any more to a small window, the only way is to exit then delete settings.dat.

Hope that helps ?

Ah...when that happens just click the title bar and drag it down to where you can reach a corner as it starts backup at the size it was and not maximized. I will see about adding a maximize check on shutdown and if it is then invoke maximize on startup of it at some point hopefully soon.

I have fixed it but not uploaded it yet.  When I do upload the next version it will detect maximized state and save the size it was before it was maximized and it will also launch maximized if it was maximized and you can click the form maximize button to take it down to the size it was before it was maximized without having to drag the form.

A public beta of Color Warlock 2.0.0 build 10 is ready for testing.

Note 1: It has a new color chart file format of xml therefore see note 2 as to why you will not see the old format in the custom menu.
Note 2: It will save your .ccf file to a .xml (while keeping the .ccf file) as soon as you use the import function in the chart builder.
Note 3: Check out the eyedropper tool as it has a change that should help you even more.
Note 4: It does save and load from a xml settings file now as well therefore you will have to fix your settings most likely.)
Note 5: It will not show up on the normal check for updates in the program cause it is being considered beta.

Nice work indeed!
A glitch here, though. If I drag the crosshairs from chart-builder/screen to my secondary monitor I get an unhandled exception.

You will need to give me more info than that if I am to try to fix that as I do not have a multi monitor setup.

MAJOR UPDATE

1. Changed the file format to xml.  Use converter in chart builder to convert version 1.x files.
2. Completely rewrote the chart builder eyedropper to include a magnified image of where the cursor is over.
3. Loading the program should be faster now due to a change made in how it handles the program settings.
4. Changed the menu and status strip style.

Note: It will save your .ccf file to a .xml (while keeping the .ccf file) as soon as you use the import function in the chart builder.
