Button/Menu label, description, tags and sequences

<#ffffff>	Foreground color
<kbd>		Outlined key drawing
<b>			Bold
<i>			Italic
<u>			Underline
\n			Newline
\t			Tab

Few questions.

  1. I suspect there is a way to set background color for buttons with a tag. If so, how?
    Edit:<font bgcol="#cccccc"></font> This is limited to the font background and not the whole button.
  2. Is the three-button tooltip that displays the mouse icons shown with one of these tags?
  3. Any other tags etc missing from the list above you can share?

Some things to play with...

Keep in mind none of this is documented/supported, so things could change/break. It's just stuff we needed in one place or another.

Easiest way to play with things is in button labels, since you can see the results as soon as you type.

<%checkbox> <%checkbox:0> <%checkbox:2>

<nowrap> ... </nowrap> prevents new lines, especially useful if you want one of those icons at the start or end of a word.

<fixed>Hello</fixed> uses a monospace font.

Nice, but still very cryptic. There should be a color picker for the colors. For example, i would like to change the colors starting with light green (plenty of space) to red (critical), and also change the background color to something lighter. Only a suggestion. :slightly_smiling_face:

Wow, a progress bar can be placed in a button label. Wasn't expecting that one. Was hoping for a way to set the background color of a button conditionally with evaluator. Thanks for taking the time and sharing!

Are these useful icons/images somehow accessible from a script? Perhaps using DOpus.Loadimage?
I am particularly interested in stars:0 through stars:5.

They're not available as an image but you can use a markup text control to show them in a dialog using the HTML.


@Jon any chance to use those icons in a button from a script?

No, but markup text controls can have clickable links in them which might help?

Added the missing <u>underline</u> tag to the list of my original post.
