IJ1 Color picker does not affect IJ2

The Image > Color > Color Picker command runs but has no effect on IJ2. We should store the selected fg/bg colors/values. And they should live somewhere that both FGTool and Color Picker can access.

In regards to Color Picker support we may need to write a pure IJ2 version (or else add some special code for synchronizing them in the legacy layer).

One more thing to mention. In IJ1 when you select new fg & bg colors the dropper icon colors are updated so you can tell. We need a programmatic method of seeing the current colors as spcified in FGTool or the Color Picker.

In 06390ee898d28701eb43714850bcdd77e25e9e7c improved color support in legacy layer. This lays groundwork to eventually support correct color value (or data values) synchronization.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

in c3764a9434e0cfc57e4cdc19d4dd49535c84dbf9 made color picker support work. This code will change somewhat when we go to supporting current fill value(s) rather than current fill color.
