# Color Picker

A highly customizable color picker for Android.

Yet another open source color picker for Android. So, why should you use this color picker? It is highly customizable and easy to use. You can simply add the ColorPreference to your preferences and a beautiful color picker dialog will be displayed without additional code. The color picker supports alpha and allows you to set your own presets.

The original ColorPickerView was written by Daniel Nilsson.

## Usage

Add the ColorPreference to your preference XML:

<PreferenceScreen xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto">

<PreferenceCategory>

<com.jaredrummler.android.colorpicker.ColorPreference
android:defaultValue="@color/color_default"
android:key="default_color"
android:summary="@string/color_default_summary"
android:title="@string/color_default_title"/>

...

</PreferenceCategory>

</PreferenceScreen>


Note: Using AndroidX’s PreferenceFragmentCompat? Then use com.jaredrummler.android.colorpicker.ColorPreferenceCompat

You can add attributes to customize the ColorPreference:

nametypedocumentation
cpv_dialogTypeenum“custom” to show the color picker, “preset” to show pre-defined colors
cpv_showAlphaSliderbooleanShow a slider for changing the alpha of a color (adding transparency)
cpv_colorShapeenum“square” or “circle” for the shape of the color preview
cpv_colorPresetsreferenceAn int-array of pre-defined colors to show in the dialog
cpv_dialogTitlereferenceThe string resource id for the dialog title. By default the title is “Select a Color”
cpv_allowPresetsbooleantrue to add a button to toggle to the custom color picker
cpv_allowCustombooleantrue to add a button to toggle to the presets color picker
cpv_showDialogbooleantrue to let the ColorPreference handle showing the dialog

You can also show a ColorPickerDialog without using the ColorPreference:

ColorPickerDialog.newBuilder().setColor(color).show(activity);


All the attributes above can also be applied to the ColorPickerDialog. The activity that shows the dialog must implement ColorPickerDialogListener to get a callback when a color is selected.
