The color picker uses the awesome TinyColor library for color manipulation. Each color format supported by the TinyColor library can be passed in a color property:

const $colorPicker = document.getElementById('color-picker');

// HEX format
$colorPicker.color = '#60f542';

// OR HEX with opacity
$colorPicker.color = '#60f542ff';

// OR rgb
$colorPicker.color = 'rgb(96, 245, 66)';

// OR rgb with opacity
$colorPicker.color = 'rgba(96, 245, 66, 1)';

// OR hsv
$colorPicker.color = 'hsv(110, 73%, 96%)';

// OR hsv with opacity
$colorPicker.color = 'hsva(110, 73%, 96%, 1)';

// OR hsl
$colorPicker.color = 'hsl(110, 90%, 61%)';

// OR hsl with opacity
$colorPicker.color = 'hsla(110, 90%, 61%, 1)';

APIs: Get current color in different formats

const $colorPicker = document.getElementById('color-picker');
$colorPicker.color = '#367E95';

console.log($colorPicker.hex); // #367E95

console.log($colorPicker.hex8); // #367E95FF

console.log($colorPicker.rgb); // rgb(54, 126, 149)

console.log($colorPicker.rgba); // rgba(54, 126, 149, 1)

console.log($colorPicker.hsl); // hsl(195, 47%, 40%)

console.log($colorPicker.hsla); // hsla(195, 47%, 40%, 1)

console.log($colorPicker.hsv); // hsv(195, 64%, 58%)

console.log($colorPicker.hsva); // hsva(195, 64%, 58%, 1)

You can also access the color object of the TinyColor library. It should only be used to get color values and should not be modified directly.


APIs: Popup

<toolcool-color-picker color="#e76ff1" id="color-picker"></toolcool-color-picker>
<script src="js/toolcool-color-picker.min.js"></script>

    const $colorPicker = document.getElementById('color-picker');

    // open color picker popup
    $colorPicker.opened = true;

    // close color picker popup
    $colorPicker.opened = false;
