Selecting a Color

To set the selected color of the palette use the SelectedColor property. This can be assigned on the client, in the code-behind or directly in the ASP.NET markup.

  • In the ASP.NET markup, define the color as a color name or a hexadecimal as shown in the example below.

    ASP.NET

    <telerik:RadColorPicker RenderMode="Lightweight" ID="RadColorPicker1" runat="server" Preset="standard" SelectedColor="#FFFF00" />

  • In code-behind use the SelectedColor property. The selected value is decorated with a different CSS class.

    C#

    RadColorPicker1.SelectedColor = System.Drawing.Color.Green;
    

    VB

    RadColorPicker1.SelectedColor = System.Drawing.Color.Green
    

    Displays as:

  • When the ShowIcon property is set to True the SelectedColor will fill the icon.

    C#

    RadColorPicker1.SelectedColor = System.Drawing.Color.Green;RadColorPicker1.ShowIcon = true;
    

    VB

    RadColorPicker1.SelectedColor = System.Drawing.Color.Green;RadColorPicker1.ShowIcon = true;

  • You can also get/set the SelectedColor using the client-side API, with the set_selectedColor(value), get_selectedColor() methods. To get the title of the selected color on the client you can use the get_selecteColorTitle() method. The value on the client-side is always in hexadecimal format.
