ColorPalette HtmlHelper Overview

The Telerik UI ColorPalette HtmlHelper for ASP.NET MVC is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI ColorPalette widget.

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

Basic Configuration

  1. Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC.
  2. Create a new action method which renders the view.

    public ActionResult Index()
    {
        return View();
    }
    
  3. Add a ColorPalette.

        <%: Html.Kendo().ColorPalette()
                .Name("colorpalette") // The name of the ColorPalette is mandatory. It specifies the "id" attribute of the ColorPalette.
                .Value("#ff0000") // Set the value of the ColorPalette.
        %>
    
        @(Html.Kendo().ColorPalette()
                .Name("colorpalette") // The name of the ColorPalette is mandatory. It specifies the "id" attribute of the ColorPalette.
                .Value("#ff0000") // Set the value of the ColorPalette.
        )
    

Events

You can subscribe to all ColorPalette events.

Handling by Handler Name

The following example demonstrates how to subscribe to events by a handler name.

    <%: Html.Kendo().ColorPalette()
            .Name("colorpalette")
            .Events(e => e
                .Change("colorpalette_change")
            )
    %>
    <script>
        function colorpalette_change() {
            // Handle the change event.
        }
    </script>
    @(Html.Kendo().ColorPalette()
            .Name("colorpalette")
            .Events(e => e
                .Change("colorpalette_change")
            )
    )
    <script>
        function colorpalette_change() {
            // Handle the change event.
        }
    </script>

Handling by Template Delegate

The following example demonstrates how to subscribe to events by a template delegate.

    @(Html.Kendo().ColorPalette()
            .Name("colorpalette")
            .Events(e => e
                .Change(@<text>
                function() {
                    // Handle the change event inline.
                }
                </text>)
            )
    )

Referencing Existing Instances

To reference an existing ColorPalette instance, use the jQuery.data() configuration option. Once a reference is established, use the ColorPalette client-side API to control its behavior.

// Place the following after the ColorPalette for ASP.NET MVC declaration.
<script>
    $(function() {
        // The Name() of the ColorPalette is used to get its client-side instance.
        var colorpalette = $("#colorpalette").data("kendoColorPalette");
    });
</script>
