v2.7: Building icon color doesn't match

Postby RBeatse » Tue Nov 25, 2014 6:45 am

The building icon next to events does not color correctly to match the color that is set for that location. They are colored to match the color of the calendar that they are on, which defeats the purpose of the icon. In Week view, the buildings are all colored white if on a colored calendar bar or black on a white calendar bar.

I see this too, and I agree that it is a problem. It doesn't help a bit to see the icon in the color of the calendar, but it was very helpful in previous versions to have the icon match the color of the building. I hope this can be fixed.

We can select colors for the buildings, but it doesn't apply to displayed calendar events - only to "location event" display.

Calendar events are always the color of the calendar they are on. The icon of the building is in the corner is the color of the building.

Building calendars do color events there color if they are not tied to any organization aka calendar.

That's what I'd expect, but not what I'm seeing. I've tried IE11 and Chrome.

Not seeing it in multiple browsers on an iPad either (Safari, Chrome, Atomic Web, etc.). I never realized how much I rely on that as a scheduler for all the buildings in my Stake.

Yes I see the problem now The Building Icon is going with the calendar color for some reason I misunderstood. So yes this is a problem we are looking at thanks.

I do think it looks nicer this way, but for those that have been using that feature, I can see how it can be frustrating. All I use the building icon for is to see if an event is actually tied to any specific location.
