VS Color Picker

A tiny & smart color picker for web developer(Windows only).

You can pick a color from system palette: usage_palette

Or pick a color from screen. Move cursor to the pixel and press Enter to pick, Esc to cancel: usage_sampler


There are three ways to launch color picker:

  1. After typing a color value or moving the caret inside color value, the picker will be launched automatically.
  2. Execute command VS Color Picker in Command Palette(Ctrl + Shift + P or Cmd + Shift + P).
  3. Binding a key for command extension.vs-color-picker.

Setting Options

This extension contributes the following variables to the settings:

  • vs-color-picker.autoLaunch: When true, the picker will be launched automatically. To disable auto-launch, set this option as false. Default value is true.
  • vs-color-picker.autoLaunchDelay: Milliseconds before launching. When further typing color number during this span, the picker won't be launched. Default value is 100.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
