Color Mapper comes with 5 test patterns gradient x & y, spherical, boxed, and a
pseudo-random pattern that I added for fun. One of the 5 is displayed and
changes each time you change the map. I thought about adding more. But at the
time I didn't know as much as I do now and I had other projects to do.
 Oh your right about the slider bars:) They let you choose a color. Then you can
put that color any where on the map.

I'd like to see your code. If I was going to use it to test a color map I'd put
it on a plane. Then while testing I could move the pattern around.
