Fill in an area with one click
Answer
2/23/07 7:04 AM
A feature that I would really like is to be able to fill an entire area with just one click. For instance when I outlined a piece of the puzzle in one color and I know that the outline has to be filled in with another, I'd like to use a combination of Shift-Ctrl-Alt and one mouseclick to fill the entire outlined area. That sometimes saves a whole lot of work.

Can you make that happen, guys? Would be sooooo nice! emoticon

This was form the beginning - when you open the solving window there are three buttons "free" "line" and "area" that allow drawing dots, lines or areas.

That's not quite true. The last button enables you to fill in a square, not just any area. What I mean is that I would like an option - maybe a fourth button - that enables me to fill in an area of any shape with just one click. I would like it to work the same way as the Fill button in MsPaint.

An area of ANY shape? Like a circle? How should that be done???

Oh, it's doable. All the applet needs to do is start filling the picture from the point of mouseclick in all directions until a boundary gets hit, which can be either a different color or the edge of the puzzle. I'm sure the designers on de Griddlers team can come up with an algorithm to get that done. Being a software designer myself I'm sure that if I put my mind to it, I could come up with an algorithm myself. Actually, I'd be happy to assist emoticon.

It's called flood filling. It's how drawing programs like DeluxePaint used to work. Kind of went away now with Photoshop... I would love to have that feature as well.

Yes, this would be especially useful in the workshop too ... if the "line drawing" black & white puzzle is not solvable, you can try filling some areas with color emoticon This feature will ease it ...
