ColorEdit represents a color editor control that has a dropdown window with a color palette.
ColorEdit is realized by the ColorEditExtension class. Its instance can be accessed via the ExtensionsFactory.ColorEdit helper method, which is used to add a ColorEdit extension to a view. This method's parameter provides access to the ColorEdit's settings implemented by the ColorEditSettings class, allowing you to fully customize the extension.
The Partial View should contain only the extension's code.
The code result is demonstrated in the image below.
Easy Color Selection
The ColorEdit editor allows end-users to easily enter a color by selecting a color from the color palette in the editor's dropdown window, or (if the ColorEditSettings.Properties.AllowUserInput property value is set to true) by typing a color code directly into the editor's text box using a longhand or shorthand hexadecimal notation (HEX) for RGB color values (such as #f0f, #D8D8D8). It is also possible to type HTML color names (such as "red", "green", etc.), which are then automatically converted to color codes.
The ColorEdit extension allows you to perform data validation both on the client and server side. See the Built-in Validation topic to learn more.
