Marble: Add KML support for displaying ListStyle::backgroundColor inside the file view

completed by: Levente Kurusa

mentors: Torsten Rahn, Dennis Nienhüser, René Küttner

According to

we support parsing the ListStyle tag from

  • Copy and paste the 60-80 line example code into a new file and save it with a file name that has the .kml extension
  • Start Marble and enable the "File View" panel. Settings -> Panel -> Files
  • Load the example code into Marble and check whether the ListStyle changes specified in the KML file are applied to the "File View" panel.
  • Create source code which implements the bgColor part of the example:
  <Style id="bgColorExample">

  • Check whether it makes sense to add the same capability to the Tour panel. If possible add it to both in a generic way.
