N.A.N.Y. 2011 / Re: NANY 2011 Pledge: FindColor

Thanks for pointing that out!  :)

Of course I can be more specific about that.
When you create a new theme you have to modify the original windows theme file which had a couple of hundred images. I know what color the image contains because I can pick the color e.g. the taskbar. After that I ran a search with a PowerShell script in that directory which listed all the images with that color. After that it was a trial-and-error process.

FinColor was created because I didn't find any application for this sort of feature. First it was a PowerShell script, but now it's a full program. I needed it because I wanted to give my Windows 7 a new theme and because my video card can't handle Areo I had to do it by the hard way.

Searches for the given color in a picture supported by GDI+.

Planned Features
  • Save the results
  • Generate an image which shows where are the matched pixels.

See attachment.

You can either download the installer or download the zipped version of the application. If you've downloaded the installer run it, and follow the onscreen instructions. If you've grabbed the zip file just extract it somewhere and you can use the program right away. Remember that you'll need the .Net 4 Client Profile to be able to run this program.

Using the Application
A brief description of how a user will use the Application. What tips does a user need to get going?

If you used the installer you have to go to the Add/Remove programs dialog in the Control Panel and select 'FindColor'.
If you downloaded the zip file you can simply delete the folder.

Known Issues
Are there any issues that users should know about?
