asked Oct 26 in Question / help by Bernd
Hi,

is it possible to colorize a week (like a day in printscale daily).

Background: in my project (long term project) I publish a weekly printscale but I want to mark the current week with a color.

Regards

Hello all,

Here are some complements and images:

With daily printscale, this is OK:


[See on PlantUML server]

But with weekly printscale, that is KO (We does not observe the color):


[See on PlantUML server]

Then at @PlantUML team:

1/ Could you manage range date colored on weekly printscale?

2/ Manually, like on the above example:

printscale weekly
2020/10/26 to 2020/11/01 are colored in salmon

3/ Automaticity with a new keyword?
Why not like :

this week is colored in red

But in this case it is necessary to manage the definition of the first day of a week! wink

Regards,
Th.

Thanks for the report.

This has been fixed in last beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar and on the online server.

Cool - thanks, is the used/needed syntax published yet to use weekly coloring?

Thumbs up to the team !

No, because we did not find a nice syntax yet.You can still manually color this way:

2020/10/26 to 2020/11/01 are colored in salmon

Note that in last beta, we have added a timeline footer: this is a test to see if people like it or not.

Hello PlantUML,

Thanks for the correction.

Then for the timeline footer (I like it, for project with a lot of actions yes), but:

  1. Could you add a line after, like on the header with a border around. (i.e.: make the symmetric of the header timeline) ?
     
  2. Could you add also a command to remove this footer (especially for short project), as on sequence diagram:
hide footbox
'or
hide foottimeline

Thanks for your support,
Regards,
Th.

We have just added hide footbox on last beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar and on the online server.

There is also a border.

Thanks for your tests!
