This part describes what you need to change in programs use
older versions of GTK+ so that they can use the new features.
It also mentions how to convert applications using widgets
found in the libgnomeui library to use their counterparts
in GTK+.

<title>Migrating from GnomeColorPicker to GtkColorButton</title>
<para>
Since version 2.6, GTK+ provides the <link linkend="GtkColorButton">GtkColorButton</link>
widget as a replacement for the GnomeColorPicker widget in the libgnomeui library.
</para>
<para>
Porting an application from GnomeColorPicker to <link linkend="GtkColorButton">GtkColorButton</link>
is very simple. <link linkend="GtkColorButton">GtkColorButton</link> doesn't support dithering
(since it is rarely needed on modern hardware), and it doesn't have setters and getters to set the
color from floating point or integer components. So instead of
<informalexample><programlisting>
guint red, green, blue, alpha;
/* ... */
gnome_color_picker_set_i8 (color_picker, red, green, blue, alpha);
</programlisting></informalexample>
you have to write
<informalexample><programlisting>
GdkColor color;
color.red = red << 8;
color.green = green << 8;
color.blue = blue << 8;
gtk_color_button_set_color (color_picker, &color);
gtk_color_button_set_alpha (color_picker, alpha << 8);
</programlisting></informalexample>
and similarly for the setters taking other number formats. For gnome_color_picker_set_i16() no conversion
is needed, for gome_color_picker_set_d(), you need to convert the color components like this:
<informalexample><programlisting>
color.red = (guint16) (red * 65535.0 + 0.5);
color.green = (guint16) (green * 65535.0 + 0.5);
color.blue = (guint16) (blue * 65535.0 + 0.5);
</programlisting></informalexample>
</para>
