ColorPicker TagHelper Overview

The Telerik UI ColorPicker TagHelper for ASP.NET Core is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI ColorPicker widget.

The ColorPicker provides suggestions depending on the typed text and allows multiple value entries.

Initializing the ColorPicker

The following example demonstrates how to define the ColorPicker by using the ColorPicker TagHelper.

    <kendo-colorpicker name="picker">
        <messages apply="Change" cancel="Close" />
    </kendo-colorpicker>

Basic Configuration

The ColorPicker TagHelper configuration options are passed as attributes of the tag and through nested tags (<messages>).


        @(Html.Kendo().ColorPicker()
            .Name("picker")
            .Value("#fff")
            .Messages(m => m.Apply("Change").Cancel("Close"))
            .Events(events => events.Select("preview"))
        )

        <kendo-colorpicker name="picker" value="#fff" on-select="preview">
            <messages apply="Change" cancel="Close" />
        </kendo-colorpicker>

The ColorPalette tag helper configuration options are passed as attributes of the tag and through nested tags (<tile-size>).


        @(Html.Kendo().ColorPalette()
            .Name("palette")
            .Columns(4)
            .TileSize(s => s.Width(34).Height(19))
            .Palette(new string[] {
                "#f0d0c9", "#e2a293", "#d4735e", "#65281a",
                "#eddfda", "#dcc0b6", "#cba092", "#7b4b3a",
                "#fcecd5", "#f9d9ab", "#f6c781", "#c87d0e",
                "#e1dca5", "#d0c974", "#a29a36", "#514d1b",
                "#c6d9f0", "#8db3e2", "#548dd4", "#17365d"
            })
            .Events(events => events.Change("preview"))
        )

        @{
            string[] colorPickerPalette = new string[] {
                                        "#f0d0c9", "#e2a293", "#d4735e", "#65281a",
                                        "#eddfda", "#dcc0b6", "#cba092", "#7b4b3a",
                                        "#fcecd5", "#f9d9ab", "#f6c781", "#c87d0e",
                                        "#e1dca5", "#d0c974", "#a29a36", "#514d1b",
                                        "#c6d9f0", "#8db3e2", "#548dd4", "#17365d"
                                    };
        }
        <kendo-colorpalette name="palette" columns="4" on-change="preview" palette-colors="colorPickerPalette">
            <tile-size height="19" width="34" />
        </kendo-colorpalette>
