View Full Version : New Posting Features - Alts in color picker for the colorblind

12 Feb 2009, 12:00
I asked over at vbulletin.com (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=299716) in the suggestion area that they put alts in the color picker section of the WYSIWYG. Basically, when you mouse over any of the colors, it will alt with the color name, i.e. "Red". Everyone seemed to agree it should already be there and someone also posted the code to do it:

In clientscript/vbulletin_textedit.js find:

option.onclick = vB_Text_Editor_Events.prototype.coloroption_onclick;
below add:

option.title = option.colorname;

On my version, I found the javascript a little different, so here is what I found:

option.onclick = vB_Text_Editor_Events.prototype.coloroption_onclick
next to it add:

;option.title = option.colorname;

Hope this helps those like me who cant see colors well. :)
