Abstract

In user interactive color graphics computer displays, the user may generate a series of geometric shapes on the screen to build the display. To provide a display of pleasing appearance and ease of interpretation, the geometrical shapes are filled with different colors. It is desirable to simplify the user procedure for filling the geometrical shapes with colors selected by the user. This is accomplished by invoking a color fill software tool and providing the user with a color menu for each geometrical shape to be filled. For example, if the user desires to fill a circle displayed on the screen, the circle is identified by placing the cursor within the circle and invoking the color fill tool. There is then displayed a series of color blocks from which the user may choose.

Center Fill of Color Choice

In user interactive color graphics computer displays, the user may generate a series of geometric shapes on the screen to build the display. To provide a display of pleasing appearance and ease of interpretation, the geometrical shapes are filled with different colors. It is desirable to simplify the user procedure for filling the geometrical shapes with colors selected by the user. This is accomplished by invoking a color fill software tool and providing the user with a color menu for each geometrical shape to be filled. For example, if the user desires to fill a circle displayed on the screen, the circle is identified by placing the cursor within the circle and invoking the color fill tool. There is then displayed a series of color blocks from which the user may choose. A specific color is chosen by placing the cursor within one of the color blocks and then pressing ENTER. The tool then fills the circle with that color.
