CursorColor plugin is doing pretty much the same as this lua did 3 years ago when Kaelri wrote it... :D

Darn, I should have remembered you added that 3rd party plugin last year... no lua needed, but a 3rd party plugin is! ;-)

After a lot of Hi-Jacking, and a little tinkering by me, I decided to switch from Kaelri's Lua script to JSMorley's CursorColor...

See, sometimes pestering does pay off! :sly:

This change allows me to include a new Desktop Color Picker skin.

Another advantage for skin authors is the picker skin should be easy to incorporated in to other color setting skins; set 3 variables in the picker skin to tell it where to save the color.

THANK YOU JSMorley for your pestering & plugin! :D

Disclaimer: I only dabble in Lua, so if I overlooked an obvious solution, rather than the one below, please feel free to correct me. :)

I looked into using the lua HSBLib, but found it had a similar issue to other skins that select complimentary colors:
Not picking brightness that is complimentary to the color when the colors were close to white or black... it would select brightness similar to the color brightness, rather than a complimentary level.

With a small mod to the colorBrightness formula in HSBLib to: colorBrightness = (1 - colorMax * colorMin) or 1, it returns better levels as the colors approach white or black.

With that resolved, I created a ColorDegree.lua file to properly set opposite and 2 complimentary colors using HSBLib.
The resulting generated colors and brightness are more complimentary :sly:

Added the "Ease of Access" ~ Magnify.exe to assist in desktop color selection.

You can control the magnification using "Ease of Access" settings.

Tested in Win10, It should work in Win8.1. Win7 users may not be able to use magnification.
