Inverted cursor (Focus Rectangle)
« on: October 05, 2011, 19:55:45 »
It's more convenient for me to see inverted cursor (focus rect) like in the pic.
I'd like to see it in one of the future versions if it is not hard to implement.

I Think it is possible to configure it so it will be like that.

Make sure "use file specified background colors" (and for folders too) are checked..
Then when customizing the the colors you will override the default background.

and you can configure the color for "Focus" and "Checked and in focus" to be inverted from what normal is.

Think I need a better way to export/import colors :)

but if you edit your zFileManager.xml file. (back the old before.  just in case)

Replace text below with similar text in the file. . it is located in the beginning of the file after the <colors> tag.


Code: [Select]
<backgroundhighlight value="0" color="ffffea"/>
    <override_windows_bg value="1">
      <alternating value="0"/>
      <active color="034323"/>
      <active_alt color="fefada"/>
      <inactive color="00005e"/>
      <inactive_alt color="cbfecb"/>
    </override_windows_bg>
    <item_specific_bg_color value="0">
      <use_files_bg value="1"/>
      <use_folders_bg value="1"/>
    </item_specific_bg_color>
    <focusrect value="388e8e"/>
    <files>
      <normal foreground="e4fa46" background="-1"/>
      <focus foreground="044e29" background="ffffff"/>
      <selected foreground="e4fa46" background="-1"/>
      <checked foreground="f38363" background="-1"/>
      <checkedfocus foreground="df3f11" background="ffffff"/>
    </files>
    <folders>
      <normal foreground="e4fa46" background="-1"/>
      <focus foreground="044e29" background="ffffff"/>
      <selected foreground="e4fa46" background="-1"/>
      <checked foreground="f38363" background="-1"/>
      <checkedfocus foreground="f38363" background="ffffff"/>
    </folders>

You might need to tweak the color a bit.. ther the major part of what you want is done.. I think..
