FlatColorPicker JSP Tag Overview

The FlatColorPicker JSP tag is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI FlatColorPicker widget.

Getting Started


Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the Kendo UI FlatColorPicker.

Step 1 Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for JSP.

Step 2 Create a new action method to render the view.

    @RequestMapping(value = {"index"}, method = RequestMethod.GET)
    public String index() {

        return "web/flatcolorpicker/index";

Step 3 Add the Kendo UI taglib mapping to the page.

    <%@taglib prefix="kendo" uri="https://www.telerik.com/kendo-ui/jsp/tags"%>

Step 4 Add the flatcolorpicker tag.

    <kendo:flatColorPicker name="flatcolorpicker" value="#ff0000">

Event Handling

Subscribe to Events

You can subscribe to all events exposed by Kendo UI FlatColorPicker by the handler name.

<kendo:flatColorPicker name="flatcolorpicker" change="flatcolorpicker_change"></kendo:flatColorPicker>

    function flatcolorpicker_change() {
        // Handle the change event


Existing Instances

You are able to reference an existing FlatColorPicker instance via the jQuery.data(). Once a reference is established, you are able to use the FlatColorPicker API to control its behavior.

// Put this after your Kendo FlatColorPicker tag declaration
$(function() {
    // Notice that the Name() of the flatcolorpicker is used to get its client-side instance
    var flatcolorpicker = $("#flatcolorpicker").data("kendoFlatColorPicker");
