Midi notes and midi column color

Post by magmavander »

Hi all,

how can I change the color of the midi note and of the midi row (the three dots for notes) in Pattern View.
As you can see in the picthure it's not easy to work on it :?
thanks!!

Yes, dark themes do not fit very well to the midi note color, same interest here.

Note columns use the "PE Text" color of the current theme with a blending :
textcolor = pew->pCB->GetThemeColor("PE Text");
mtextcolor = Blend(textcolor, RGB(0, 0, 255), 0.66f);

So you can modify the "PE Text" color of the theme and see if it's better.

Thanks a lot Chahur!
But I dont find what you're talking about... :roll: (yes I'm dumb about coding).
Which file must I open ? Is it a xaml file (I use Kaxaml for that) ? A *.col file ?
I use the "iLKke machines (extended)".
Or do I have to open a theme stored in the "Default" folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Jeskola\Buzz\Themes\Default) ?
Sorry to be that noob :oops:

PatternXP use the .col file.

For you, it's the file "\Themes\iLKke machines (extended).col".

Add a line with :
PE Text nnnnnn

where "nnnnnn" is the color to use.

Thanks for your help.
Ah stupid me... I used MaxB YaBuzz tools to open the col file :roll:
I have to open it in notepad to see PE Text command.
PE Text was yet included in the col file.
Ok I made some test. Not very easy to get the right color at the moment to make the midi column more "visible".
Is the midi column color fixed so that we cant change it ? IS this in PatternXP ?
Thanks again ;)

Of which midi column are you talking ?

PatternXP uses 5 color params :
For example,
PE BG 727272
PE BG Dark 595959
PE BG Very Dark 4D4D4D
PE Sel BG 292929
PE Text FFFFFF

but the columns midi notes are modified with Blend(textcolor, RGB(0, 0, 255), 0.66f);
That means its more or less blue at the end.

I can change that in patternXP. I can add a param to disable the blending, so all columns will be written the same way.
Is it what you would like to have ?

The midi note (like in the picture posted in this thread).

Ah ok, I understand now, well I hope :lol:
The Blend function superimpose a color to the choosen color of the text (PE Text), am I right ?

Well, I dont want to bother you with that. I want before to try to modify the different PE color before.
