You can "freeze" any dimension at a certain value (e.g. Hue = 270 deg.)

Here's a handy "Color Picker" class to be used in your own plugins. I created this because I needed it for my plugins and there wasn't an existing class that allowed you to view the full gamut of available colors. (Galuhad's Color Picker is fine for most purposes, but it only shows colors that have 100% saturation. You can't choose "washed out" colors with it.)

The user interface is one that nearly all users will find familiar. You can use the red/green/blue or the hue/saturation/value color space, whichever is more comfortable to you.

How to Use
  1. Place the Thurallor directory from the attached zip file into your Plugins directory.
  2. You can use the "ColorPickerDemo" plugin to try it out.
  3. Look at the ColorPickerDemo.lua source code for an example of how to use the class in your own plugins.
