Tool appearance

Hello everybody.

two questions about the Tools.


is it possible to change the value of the StepIntervalInMilliseconds in "real time" visualizing it, for example as a fader? I set it as visible but I didnt see anything new appearing in my tool



is it possible to change the color of the font in a text field? as I am working on a tool for "something like" live coding, I would need a black background for the clubs enviroment (I am an optimist and I hope that clubs will open soon :) )

peace from the quarantine.

To control a variable in the Tool, double-click it, select Fader, then click Set Display Options to set the range of the fader, for example:

You can set the background of a Text variable, for example, to DarkGray by double-clicking the variable name:

In Kyma / Xtra Tools, there's an example called widget sampler.pci with more examples for setting colors.

but what if I would like to change the color of the text?
Sorry, at the moment, the text itself is always black :(
btw, the Tool is one of the very oldest parts of Kyma ;)
no problem :), but keep it in mind it would be useful to change text colour.
