JMetro Version 8.6.11 And 11.6.11 Released

Hi. Another release of JMetro.

This time 2 new control have been restyled, bug fixes and other small tweaks.

I hope you are all staying safe and well in this strange times. Keep on reading for details.

New ColorPicker Style

Following is an animation of the new ColorPicker style LIGHT and DARK:

The gif recording software left out a few glitches in the images above which aren’t present in the real thing.

New Spinner Style

Microsoft just recently added a kind of a spinner to its Fluent Design library. IMHO it’s not great. And since they probably want to have touch support built in right of the bat, it seems a bit strange when used on a Desktop with a simple mouse and keyboard. In FD it’s called NumberBox.

So I opted for the Spinner in JMetro to have a completely new and unrelated style because I personally don’t like the FD one so much.
