xnview MP - disable viewer? change color?

Post by vanderzee » Fri Mar 08, 2019 11:03 am

is there any way to disable the "viewer"?
`
im colorblind, and the blue makes it quite hard to see which item is actually selected, also the grey background

i know the dark theme has a "style sheet" but i have no clue which i have to change in order to get what i need


like here:

I'm looking for that too - is it in the .qss stylesheet as a setting? If I would know which one it is I could already change it there 8)

I've looked around a little and found in the xnview.ini file these entries:
selectedColor=
prevBackColor=

The first one appears to be our value entry, but it doesn't do anything (at least for me).
The second one which I'm interested too, looks like the color value for the last visited file/folder (not working too).

Additionally back in the classic days this was a UI tweaker and those values (Foldercolor/SelBorderColor) could be modified. In the xnview.ini file the entries "m_folderColor1=" and other numbers are there and can be modified (my folders look so awesome right now :wink: ) but still, the select border color seems to miss the link, maybe something about the classic->mp transition.

So, we need to wait until it gets implemented
or it's already built in but under another value entry, not "selectedColor=".

In the .qss files I wasn't able to find a solution, I don't know much of that topic :?

Maybe Pierre can give some more information about that...

@vanderzee

Wow I'm surprised of myself - I've found the color value on item selection 8)

...at least for the more important part :wink:
I'm gonna look if I can find out to change the blue border around the folder/picture but takes some time I guess. I hope Pierre can make the whole thing as a user-friendly setting in the future.

Anyway, to change the highlighting to another color you need to add following lines into style_sheet.qss:
QListView{
background-color: rgb(16, 0, 24);
border: 1px solid black;
selection-color: rgb(153, 255, 255);
selection-background-color: rgb(102, 0, 51);

}
--------------------------------------------------------------------
*selection-color changes the font color
*selection-background-color changes the background itself

Hope this helps you in a way :wink:

It seems that the rest of the color values needs to be implemented without style sheets.
With *{} you can give the same value to every widget and if you do that it doesn't change a thing for the thumbnail highlighting :(

At least we are able to change the text highlighting at the moment. The other stuff like the blue border selection, selected active background and previous selected background would be nice to change them in the settings, if Pierre could implement that.
