Custom Color Swatches/Palettes

Within LiveCycle Designer ES2, is there a way to save and later load custom color swatches and palettes the way you can in Photoshop?

This capability would help to ensure that we not only conform to our branding guidelines, but it would also save a lot of time. As it stands, I have to enter RGB values every time I fire up LiveCycle. They remain for the duration of my session, but if I close LiveCycle, all is lost. It's somewhat annoying...

Once all your colors are set, try using form1.saveXML();

Hi, Magus069.

I'm sorry, but can you be a little more specific. Is this a scripting command of some kind? If so, where should it be inserted/with which function or event should it be associated?

Thank you.

Sorry for misleading you... I thought it was all about the Form you created...

I didn't know it was possible to customize the swatches and pallettes colors...

There must be a way and I am not aware of, or it is not an option... yet...

My apologies... if I ever find how, i'll let you know

In ES2 no. Not sure about the later versions. I know later versions have support for style sheets and that kind of thing.

One thing you can do is create your custom objects and put them in the Object Library for re-use.

This is the course I've taken and, unfortunately, appears to be the only course to take. I thought I would ask nevertheless; thanks for your reply.
