MMColor is a user interface plug-in that allows your users to work with color palettes more like they would in any professional design application. MMColor has functions for bringing up the system color picker as well as custom sliders for adjusting any Component of any Color Space used by MMColor right in FileMaker Pro. MMColor supports the RGB, HSV, HSL, CMY, and CMYK Color Spaces. The colors returned from MMColor can be used with FileMaker Pro’s TextColor calculation function to colorize text in fields, or it can return color chips that can be stored in container fields. The color chips can be set to any RGB value, any width and height, and any level of alpha transparency. You can use these color chips to dynamically alter the entire appearance of your solution in a matter of seconds, or allow your users to define their own color schemes for the solution you created for them.
