I'm using TwoPanes layout, version 3.5, XP

This mode seems to give two different kinds of image selection: The checkbox and the highlighted border. The checkbox marks the image as one that should be sent, which is perfect. The highlighted border is just confusing to our users. Any way to get rid of it?

Hello Dave,

You can use the following properties to set the color of selection area items :

PreviewThumbnailActiveSelectionColor
PreviewThumbnailInactiveSelectionColor

Also to make it work you have to set the UseSystemColors property value to False.

Getting closer.

The on-line documentation calls these parameters
PreviewThumbnailActiveColor
PreviewThumbnailInactiveColor

The software seems to split the difference, responding to
PreviewThumbnailActiveSelectionColor and
PreviewThumbnailInactiveColor

Setting those to "black" and "white" makes the display much better, but there remain two problems:

* A very minor problem that an acitve thumbnail still gets a dotted line around it.

* A more important problem is that the file names disappear for active thumbnails,
since they're being displayed white-on-white.

I tried setting all of the DisplayNameActiveSelectedTextColor family of parameters to "black",
but no luck: these parameters seem to be ignored. Do I have the names right?


Thanks.

Hello Dave,

* A very minor problem that an acitve thumbnail still gets a dotted line around it.

The dotted rectangle around items is a focus rectangle.

* A more important problem is that the file names disappear for active thumbnails,
since they're being displayed white-on-white.


You can use the following code sample to hide selection and make file names to be visible any way:
Code:
<param name="UseSystemColors" value="false">
<param name="PreviewThumbnailActiveSelectionColor" value="white">
<param name="PreviewThumbnailInactiveSelectionColor" value="white">
<param name="DisplayNameActiveSelectedTextColor" value="black">

This topic is out of date.

You should use iuembed.js syntax now:


Code:
iu.addParam("UseSystemColors", "false");
iu.addParam("PreviewThumbnailActiveSelectionColor", "white");
iu.addParam("PreviewThumbnailInactiveSelectionColor", "white");
iu.addParam("DisplayNameActiveSelectedTextColor", "black");

Yes thanks, that works very nicely. Also adding these two lines:

Code:
    <param name="PreviewThumbnailInactiveColor" value="#444444">
    <param name="PreviewThumbnailActiveColor" value="#444444">


preserves the square around the thumbnail.

The confusion was that PreviewThumbnailActiveSelectionColor and PreviewThumbnailInactiveSelectionColor are undocumented in my version of the help, and have names similar to documented parameters.

Thanks again,

-- Dave

Hello Dave,

These properties have been implemented not long time ago so they have not been documented yet.
Sincerely yours,
