In the visual studio storyboard designer, the selected background color displayed in HTML format is read only.
And the RGBA cells which are read/write are not initilizing to the widget's background color. They always keep the last value that was input.
So there is no way to copy an existing background color to another widget background color without having a calc app to compute html hex to decimal.
To reproduce, in visual studio:
- create an empty storyboard
- add a view, set its background color to blue
- add another view, set its background color to green
- swith back to the first view, and look at the numbers in the properties toolbox in the Background section. Instead of having 255 in B cell it displays 255 in R cell.
