StatTools.net is closing down
There are too many stattools sites on the Internet, some of which are commercial entities, and statstools is also already a registered trade mark of a large and successful corporation, so statstools.net is at risk of being closed down at short notice.
All statistics pages in statstools.net have been moved to the new company site at www.statstodo.com and all future developments and maintenance will be at the new site.
All pages other than a few administrative pages are now no longer available on StatTools.net. The urls are still there, but they merely offer links to similar pages in StatsToDo. This will provide continuity for existing users.
The domain registration for StatTools.net ends in August 2013 and will not be renewed. The current StatTools.net web site will then disappear.
Creating and blending colors
The first applet allows the creating of any color by combining red, green, and blue values (0-255). Once the color is created, it is placed on a map, and its saturation altered by the addition of grey (from left to right), and it is tinted (adding white) and shaded (adding black) from top to bottom. This allows the user to choose a color, with its variants of saturation and tone.
The second applet allows the blending of any two preselected colors. The two colours to be blended are entered into the appropriate btext fields. Please note that the color should be in the web page hex notation, so white is #FFFFFF and black is #000000. On clicking the blend button, the colors designated will appear, so that the user can check that the right colors have been entered. The blending map then appears. The varying level of blending is from left to right, and the amount of tinting and shading for each combination is from top to bottom.
If the applet does not appear, then the two most likely reasons are
If the message "time expired" appears when you run the applet, then you need to reload the page and the applet from the server. The applet has a time stamp on it when downloaded, and will only run for 24 hrs. Some computers save the applet and re-run it to save downloading time so may run a time expired applet. Click the refresh button will sometimes fix this problem. If not, then you will have to clear the browser cache, or to exit and then restart the browser.
