I'd like to change the colors of the text and background in which the documentation appears when I -hover. Does that element have a name in Edit..Preferences..Fonts and Colors?
This is not editable in Preferences.
You'll want to take a look at this FAQ:
Thanks. Any idea what that box is called that appears on -hover? Or how that is discoverable> It seems like the DOM inspector might have trouble identifying it since it only is visible on -hover.
In your DOM inspector it should show up as panel and the element ID is: hyperlink_gotodefinition_tooltip.
If you find it there you will also see class: light, so :
This is attributed to the scheme you choose in Preferences:Fonts and Colors. There is a hyperlink_gotodefinition_tooltip.dark as well.
You can edit this element by using the userChrome.css technique described in the link provided above.
In the userChrome.css file try:
I added that and it improved the color, but, besides the -hover tootip, an additional and annoying tooltip of whatever I selected started appearing. This interferes with selecting right button menu items.
I guess there is not a more rapidly iterable method of fiddling around with this type of style adjustment? The current process for me is 1. guess what the name of an element is that I want to change (and this step is impossible), 2. change the css file, 3. restart Komodo.
Perhaps a visual interface like Firebug or Chrome developer tools? Although I don't know how I would discover the hover styles using those.
You can both inspect and change CSS quickly through the DOM Inspector tool:
I've used it, but I was hoping for something more like Firebug where if I don't know the name of an element, it highlights its html when I hover over it.
Or maybe I just don't understand the way to use the DOM inspector to discover the names of the elements whose CSS I would like to change.
It's not as nice as Firebug, but you can click on the "Find a node" toolbar button in Dom Inspector, then click on an element in Komodo and it'll locate/show you that particular element.
