I created this FREE LiveCode GUI Color Toolkit Stack while working on various LiveCode development projects (Including my recently updated DLI_SNUB-Launcher and new DreamLight Constellation network rendering utilities) where I often had to select text colors and background colors for use in GUIs (Graphical User Interfaces). I needed a quick and ease way to test the readability of various text and background colors in LiveCode GUIs. LiveCode has a large number of built-in ColorNames that can make working with colors easier than dealing with RGB or Hex colors. This toolkit allows easy selection of any of the built-in ColorNames which loads that color into a large background color swatch with black and white text on top of it. It also loads that color into foreground text overlaid on a range of grayscale and other background colors. Each selected color is also displayed as the ColorName, RGB color and Hex color, all of which can be copied to the clipboard with a single click. Double-clicking on any ColorName or on the large color background opens the color picker so that you may further tweak the color if desired.
