  • Inputfield with Spectrum Color Picker (JavaScript)
    Options modifiable

  • array()
	array(
		[0] => 0-255, // opacity
		[1],['r'] => 0-255,
		[2],['g'] => 0-255,
		[3],['b'] => 0-255,
		['rx'] => 00-ff,
		['gx'] => 00-ff,
		['bx'] => 00-ff,
		['ox'] => 00-ff, // opacity
		['o'] => 0-1 // opacity
	)

Templates & API


You can always modify values or output format via ProcessWire API.

Modify output format

$f = $page->fields->get('myColorField');
$f->outputFormat = 8;
echo $page->color['rx'];

Modify values

  • Delete the page field value by setting empty string or NULL.
  • The values (int) 0, (string) '0', '00000000' and '#00000000' are similar and stored as (int) 0 (black, full transparent).
$page->of(false);
$page->myColorField = 'ff0000'; // red
$page->save('myColorField');

Notes


Deleting values is only possible with inputfields of type='text' and via API.

If a default value is set, the field is filled with it if the field is empty (for example on newly created pages).
If Inputfield of type='text' 32bit is selected you can set the value to '#00000000' and the default value will be ignored.

The Fieldtype includes Spectrum Color Picker by Brian Grinstead

Any custom Javascript based Inputfield can be used.


Fieldtype Select Color Options

This fieldtype is included in the package. The module is an extension of the Core FieldtypeOptions module and offers colors as predefined selectable options via 4 different input field types (Select, SelectMultiple, Checkboxes and Radios).
