#StackBounty: #windows-7 #colors #dialog #ux Standard Windows Pick color dialog doesn't allow to enter 3-digit color codes

Bounty: 50

The standard Windows 7 Pick color dialog allows me to enter only 2 digits into text fields for hue, saturation, luminance and red, green and blue even though possible value range for each field is one byte, i.e. 0255.

When I select a specific color from Basic colors or from the color matrix, it fills the text fields with the right values (see the image below) but I cannot enter the 3-digit values manually.

Simply it looks like the input text boxes for red/green/blue and hue/saturation/luminance values have maximum text length set to 2 characters. It’s not possible to enter 3-digit numbers by manual typing or for example by pasting from the clipboard. When I paste for example number 255 into all three color text boxes, instead of white color, the selected one is almost black because it cut the last digit during pasting, i.e. pasted 25 instead of 255.

This way it’s nearly impossible to select a specific color (unless it’s among the Basic colors). I have to try to get as close color to my intended one as possible using the matrix and the slider.

Is it possible to fix it anyhow?

Note: Windows 10 has the dialog fixed and allows me to enter the 3-digit values manually.
