grid selection visual is a little awkward?
« on: October 11, 2011, 10:24:15 AM »
One of the things that is just a tad weird about CHS is the grid selection style.  To me, it seems like the opposite of what I expect, like looking at a negative photograph.

When you click on a "cell" the color of the selected cell doesn't change at all (which is counter intuitive).  Instead the whole row highlights, except for the clicked cell.  I like the whole row highlighting, but it would feel better if the selected cell was highlighted some way also, perhaps a light yellow background just to distinguish it from the non selected cells.

Or better yet, let the users choose the colors for all that stuff.  What do you say?

No! Never! :P
Even though I do agree that the design can and should be improved, mouser's programs suffer from excess of options, and this is clearly not a main feature of the program, it should not be an option.

I suggest a lighter grey background for the selected field :)
