If the element already has a color, the circle will be colored in that color.

Color picker

Color picker is a pop-up window that allows to select the color. Two types of windows are offered for a comfortable choice:

Both allow the user to select a color value, but the difference is in the number of colors available.

Color picker is available only for Input With Name interpretation type.

There a standard set of options in both types of picker:

  • Close button - allows to close the pop-up window
  • Apply button - allows to save the selected color as a field value
  • Clear button - allows to reset the field value
  • Cancel button - allows to close the pop-up window without saving value
  • Advanced mode switcher - allows to switch between picker modes

In addition, both modes have additional options, which are described in separate chapters below.

Standard Mode

The first element mode is the Standard mode. It offers a set of 20 colors for quick selection. It allows user to work quickly with the element and provides a wide range of colors.

Color picker standard mode

As mentioned above, this mode has both a standard set of options and a unique one. So, for this mode, a unique option is a list of ready-made colors that can be selected by clicking on them.

Advanced Mode

The Advanced mode is used to set any color from the color selector. Unlike the previous mode, this one allows the user to choose absolutely any color. This is all thanks to its unique settings.

Advanced mode of the color picker

The options of this mode allows you to set any color:

  • Color Wheel - allows to select the color hue
  • Luminance slider - allows to set the luminance of the color and color wheel
  • Hex code field - returns the hex code of the resulting color. You can also enter a hex code for the color you want. This color will be saved in the field.

These options, along with the standard ones, are in the current mode to expand the capabilities of the color picker.
