#34 background-color-luminance for hex-values


I think it would be a wonderful feature if the background-color-luminance of the hex-values would correspondent to the hex-values itself (e.g. 2 hex-digits). So it would be much easier to see the structure of a file immediately.
As far as I know, there isn't a hex-editor with this feature.
Best Regards and thanks for your work!

    Implemented feature code on svn revision 403.
    But I don't enable it.
    You can experiment it by compiling.

    Please enable wxHexCtrl.cpp Line 457 before compilation.

    I rework on this. Code gained lots of speed and usable right now.
    Just put the code and you can enable by defining into wxHexCtrl line 473
    Hex_2_Color_Engine_Prototype 1

    Soon, will add a switch to enable this via options menu or right menu.
    Might be on v0.25
