Screen Picker

Screen Picker
is my first Open Source gadget which I have developed using a COM Dll.

This gadget allows you to pick a color from the screen and copy it's code (html) to the clipboard. Simply it's like an eyedropper tool for the whole screen... :-)

How to use :
  • Move your mouse over the screen, the gadget retrieves pixel color where the mouse points, and display it in the small box.
  • Press F8 to select a color. The code will be automatically copied to the clipboard if the check box 'Auto copy' is checked.
  • Selected color will be displaying in the large box.
Screen Picker is an open-source gadget under Apache license hosted on Google Code. Please feel free to go through the code base and implement more features. :-)

I used :
  • VS.NET 2005 to create the helper dll. (ATL C++)
  • Many Faces... :-)
