Description

In BeOS R5 when a BColorControl had keyboard focus you could move between the red, green, and blue ramps with the up and down arrows, and increase or decrease the color value with the left and right arrows. The ramps also had a blue focus ring drawn around them and the currently selected dot in the ramps was drawn as an open circle. I can imagine that keyboard navigation might have worked in palette mode as well.

+1 to fixing this. Using our color control has always felt a bit clunky since the mouse just is not precise enough. Plus if BeOS had this, we should.

Just curious as it might be a fun, small little project for someone.

I don't have plans to work on this right now but eventually I'll get back to it. If you, or somebody else wants to implement this feature in the mean time be my guest. I'd be very grateful if somebody were to take up this task.
