Code Completion for Colors in CSS
By Petr on Feb 25, 2010
Another improvements that is based on your comments is code completion for colors in CSS rules. The code completion for color and background property offers now at first position an item that opens color chooser.
There is a standard Java color chooser and when you select a color in the chooser, the color is completed. The chooser remembered last selected color and also the item in code completion has an icon (small square) with the last selected color.
The color chooser above is from Linux platform. On Mac and Windows machine the color chooser looks like on the picture below and it looks better. If there will be time, the standard Java color chooser component will be replaced with a custom component, that should be better for web developer purpose.
If you look at the first picture, there are black and gray color code completion items. The black color items are used in the edited file and the gray color items are colors that are used in other CSS files in the project.
In the same way works code completion for color and background property of a style in HTML and PHP files.
