#ColorPicker

This is yet another colorpicker plugin for jQuery since most of them are not on GitHub nor being mantained at the moment.

The plugin is a fork of the one developed by Stefan Petre who seems not to be interested in it anymore. I needed a powerfull colorpicker for one of my projects so I updated it and then thought it would be nice if it would were freely available.

You can see the demo now.

##Features

  • Flat model - as element in page, attached to an input and custom widget.
  • Powerful controls for color selection
  • Easy to customize the look by changing some images
  • Fits into the viewport
  • Powerful callback system to totally control the way it works

##License

The plugin is currently dual licensed under the MIT and GPL licenses.

##Implement

Attach the Javascript and CSS files to your document. Edit CSS file and fix the paths to images and change colors to fit your site theme.

    <link rel="stylesheet" media="screen" type="text/css" href="css/colorpicker.css" />  
    <script src="js/colorpicker.js"></script>

##How to use

All you have to do, is to select the elements in a jQuery way and call the plugin over them.

    $('input').ColorPicker(options); 

##Options An object containing parameters. Please, note that all parameters are optional.

eventName (string): This is the desired event to trigger the colorpicker. Default: 'click'

color (string or object): The default color. String for hex color or hash for RGB and HSB ({r:255, r:0, b:0}) . Default: 'ff0000'

flat (boolean): Whether if the color picker is appended to the element or triggered by an event. Default false

livePreview (boolean): Whether if the color values are filled in the fields while changing values on selector or a field. If false it may improve speed. Default true

onShow (function): Callback function triggered when the colorpicker is shown

onBeforeShow (function) Callback function triggered before the colorpicker is shown

onHide (function): Callback function triggered when the colorpicker is hidden

onChange (function): Callback function triggered when the color is changed

onSubmit (function): Callback function triggered when the color is chosen

##Methods

If you want to set a new color.

    $('input').ColorPickerSetColor(color);  

The 'color' argument is the same format as the option color, string for hex color or object for RGB and HSB ({r:255, r:0, b:0}).

##Examples

###Flat mode

    $('#colorpickerholder').ColorPicker({flat: true});  

Custom skin and using flat mode to display the color picker in a custom widget.

    $('#colorpickerholder2').ColorPicker({  
    	flat: true,  
    	color: '#EFEFEF',  
    	onSubmit: function(hsb, hex, rgb) {  
    		$('#colorselector div').css('backgroundColor', '#' + hex);  
    	}  
    });  

Attached to a text field and using callback functions to update the color with field's value and set the value back in the field by submiting the color.

    $('#colorpickerfield').ColorPicker({  
    	onSubmit: function(hsb, hex, rgb, el, parent) {  
    		$(el).val(hex);  
    		$(el).ColorPickerHide();  
    	},  
    	onBeforeShow: function () {  
    		$(this).ColorPickerSetColor(this.value);  
    	}  
    })  
    .bind('keyup', function(){  
    	$(this).ColorPickerSetColor(this.value);  
    });  

Attached to DOM and using callbacks to live preview the color and adding animation.

    $('#colorselector2').ColorPicker({  
    	color: '#EFEFEF',  
    	onShow: function (colpkr) {  
    		$(colpkr).fadeIn(500);  
    		return false;  
    	},  
    	onHide: function (colpkr) {  
    		$(colpkr).fadeOut(500);  
    		return false;  
    	},  
    	onChange: function (hsb, hex, rgb) {  
    		$('#colorselector2 div').css('backgroundColor', '#' + hex);  
    	}  
    });
