Custom Gradients

The user can create his own gradients for the waterfall, for this, it's necessary to create a file that follow some rules inside Waterfall_Gradients folder.

  1. Filenames need to have .txt extension.
  2. Filenames will be used as gradient name.
  3. Filenames with underscores will be replaced with spaces.
  4. Lines that do not start with # will not be processed.
  5. Color values need to follow:

    1. RGB (each of R, G, and B is a single hex digit)

    2. RRGGBB

    3. AARRGGBB

    4. RRRGGGBBB

    5. RRRRGGGGBBBB

    There is a very good tool to help with gradient colours here. 6. First value will represent 0.0 7. The last value will represent 1.0 8. The value of any other color will be 1.0*((color position) - 1)/(number of colors)

This is an example of gradient file:

; Put this example in a file called `Gradient_test.txt` in **Waterfall_Gradients**.
#000000
#ffffff
#ff0000

Where #000000 is white (low power signal - 0.0), #ffffff (average power signal - 0.5) is black and #ff0000 is red (max power signal - 1.0).
