Summary0002708: Make full JvOfficeColorButton to toggle color pallette like Arrow Click does now
DescriptionCurrently a click anywhere on JvColorButton toggles its color pallette in and out of view. However the nicer color pallette of JvOfficeColorButton can be toggled in and out of view only by clicking on the down Arrow on the right side. I would like the click on the color area of the button to be configurable to toggle the pallette in and out of view.

Another option: Provide JvColorButton with the ability to use the color pallette from JvOfficeColorButton. However, JvOfficeColorButton has more events and is a richer control. Still, for my purposes just being able to use the JvOfficeColorButton pallette in JvColorButton would be adequate.
Additional InformationPeter Thornqvist provided me with a partial implementation of this feature. However, in his implementation (included with his text below) the click on the color area will show the pallette. But a second click on the color button will not make the pallette disappear. The problem is that the down click causes the pallette to disappear. but then the call to ClickArrow in the up click event will cause the pallette to appear again. I implemented this code below and observed the lack of ability to make the second click hide the pallette.

Here is what he told me:

There is no simple "out of the box" solution. The best would be to add a
new, public procedure to the button:

procedure ClickArrow;

and implement like this:

procedure TJvCustomOfficeColorButton.ClickArrow;
  if FArrowButton <> nil then

then you could just call ClickArrow in the OnClick handler of the button:

procedure TForm1.JvOfficeColorButton1Click(Sender: TObject);
TagsNo tags attached.

I've added ButtonShowsPalette which defaults to True and tells to show the palette wherever the click occured.
I've added OnPaletteShowing event to allow user to control wether the palette is shown or not when it is about to be shown.
This will be in CVS as soon as Sourceforge fixes the "read-only" issue affecting it.
