Colored labels as graphic

3 posts in this topic

Hello all.

I'm working on a RSS reader with a built-in alarm when there are any changes. I'd like to make the gui a bit more colorfull and have a question about that.

It's not ment to be advanced graphics or anything, just some colors and right now, I'm making it with layers of labels with different background colors.

So the question is, is this a viable way to do it or would it be better to use real images and place that on the background instead? I'm thinking speed wise.

Im using labels with colors and then transparent text on top right now. Are there any backsides to doing it this way?

Code length is a factor... multiple labels VS one picture

If thats the only thing, it's not a problem. Its only like 6-8 extra labels so not anything that is going to make it more advanced :D

Thx for your reply
