Do you have a typical platform dependent issue you're battling with ? Ask it here. Make sure you mention your platform, compiler, and wxWidgets version.

For example, while painting, the artist can take a snap of the work in progress, and sample an area to see what "real" color of paint to mix. It can also be used to copy photos in oil paint.

I'm not sure what you mean by the big ugly
Typo. I meant "a bit ugly".

But if you did it on purpose, it's ok.

I just mentioned it, because usually when this happens, people forgot to use a wxPanel as background for all controls. They have a lighter default color than the wxFrame background.

Thanks for sticking with me. I suspect the app will now look better on various themes that I cannot anticipate. I wonder if I lost a contract because the thing looked bad on the customer's computer. I will give some thought to changing the background value depending on context. The way I have been using the app personally is to mix colors on a palette that's the same value as the background in the app.

Best wishes.

I lightened the background to Munsell value N7. Marked the issue as [SOLVED]. Don't know how to do it in green. Later...
