DSFColorSampler

A Swift 5, Objective-C compatible class that mimics the magnifying glass in color panel of macos. Compatible back to 10.9

API Compatible with NSColorSampler (macOS 10.15 Catalina and later)

Overview

Adapted from https://github.com/wentingliu/ScreenPicker for Swift 5 with bug fixes and some minor improvements.

Features

  • Simple shared controller with block callbacks
  • Hit Escape to cancel picking
  • Use the mouse scroll wheel to zoom in and zoom out

Usage

Swift Package Manager

Add https://github.com/dagronf/DSFColorSampler to your project.

Swift Package Manager support is not available for 10.9, so if you need to support 10.9 use the Direct method.

Direct

Add DSFColorSampler.swift to your project.

API

Simple

Show the color loupe, and call the provided completion block when the user selects a color.

Swift

DSFColorSampler.show { (selectedColor) in
   if let selectedColor = selectedColor {
      // Do something with selectedColor
   }
   else {
      // User cancelled
   }
}

Objective-C

[DSFColorSampler showWithLocationChange:^(NSImage* snapshot, NSColor* color) {
   //
} selectionHandler:^(NSColor* color) {
   //
}];

Dynamic image and mouse colors during selection

Show the color loupe, and provide callback blocks for both mouse movement and selection. For mouse movement, an image snapshot of the mouse area is also provided.

DSFColorSampler.show(
   locationChange: { (image, currentColor) in
      // Do something with the image and currentColor at the new location
   },
   selectionHandler: { (selectedColor) in
      // Do something with selectedColor
   }
)

Async support

macOS 10.15+ only

This library supports the new async/await model in Swift 5.5 using the sample() method

Task { [weak self] in
   self?.selectedColor = await DSFColorSampler.sample()
}

The sample() method is marked as @MainActor so it's guaranteed to be run on the main thread.

Note that if you're using this call, you might better be served using the NSColorSampler class in macOS 10.15+. This feature was made available as a learning exercise as how to convert callback-based async calls to Task based.

Backwards compatibility for NSColorSampler (10.15+)

The selectColor function has been added to DSFColorSampler that calls NSColorSampler().show() on 10.15 or later, and DSFColorSampler().show() on systems prior to 10.15.

Swift

DSFColorSampler.selectColor { (selectedColor: NSColor?) in
   // Do something with selectedColor
}

Objective-C

[DSFColorSampler selectColorWithSelectionHandler:^(NSColor* _Nullable selectedColor) {
	// Do something with
} ];

Releases

2.1.0

  • Added async task support for macOS 10.15+

2.0.0

  • Added selectColor static method to provide fallback capability for system before macOS 10.15.

1.5.0

1.4.0

  • Added objc demo.

1.3.0

  • Removed unfinshed demo app.
