Support for "coloured display" ?
« on: 09. March 2012, 15:35:23 »
Excellent application :) :)

One question: would it be possible that the Android application also supports the coloured display ? Some dictionaries support colours for pronunciation sections or similar; would that be possible that Android shows colours there, too ?

With very best regards,
Gert

Thanks Gert! :)

In theory coloured display should work, ie. it's implemented. But I have to admit I never tried it with a real dictionary  :-\

Can you provide me with a dictionary that uses that feature? I'll investigate that matter... Do some of the OTA dictionaries have coloured content?

Cheers,
Achim

For example:
- EngChi (CEDICT)
- EngGer (freedict)

Achim,

I did install the latest version and tried to have the coloured display. But I guess that I need some further instructions on how to activate the coloured display.

To me it seems that the 'from language' is one colour and the 'to language' is another colour. But I do not see different colours for pronunciation etc.

I tested with CEDICT and Freedict English-German.

Attached is a screenshot from the WebApp which shows colouring on CEDICT. I could not make a screenshot from Android (to my understanding screenshots cannot be made easily on non-rooted 2.3 Androids).

Best regards,
Gert
