bgcolor, color, background - Select Color and File dialog

Post by AlexBreems »

Hi,

In HTML need auto pop up when type:

bgcolor="" -> select color
color="" -> select color
background="" -> file dialog

Regards,
Alex

Those properties are not valid in HTML5, so I didn't add them. I'll fix that.

BTW. The property

background="" -> file dialog

should be

background="" -> url dialog

right?

Actually, we can add both url and file dialogs to the background property, so never mind.

Actually, background is a shorthand (like eg. border or font) and can contain definitions for background-color, background-image, background-repeat, background-attachment and background-position, so this dialog may turn out quite sophisticated in the process...

you're talking about CSS but I'm talking about HTML tags attributes 8)

http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_body.asp (see Optional Attributes)

Probably my fault. I wrote properties instead of attributes.

We were indeed talking about tag attributes, but the idea for a CSS property dialog is not a bad one. Some properties can have several values and in some cases a dialog may help. I'll consider it.

The bgcolor attribute of <body> is deprecated, and is not supported in HTML 4.01 Strict / XHTML 1.0 Strict DTD.

Use CSS instead.

Now, the question is if RJ TE should support deprecated elements/attributes/properties/whatever? Eg. HTML > Advanced > Frames? I believe it shouldn't. To the contrary, it should encourage use of recommended standards.
