Overview Table

DOM Interface HTMLInputElement

Examples

When viewed using a supporting user agent, the following example shows a field, usually indicating a red color. When clicked, a color picker shows up. Selecting a color would change the indicated color to the chosen color.

HTML

<input type="color" value="#ff0000"/>

Usage

Use this input type to let the user choose a color using a standard color picker.

Notes

  • Currently, most user agents do not implement this input type. A customized implementation or poly-fill can usually provide a close alternative.
  • The value can only express opaque colors, there is no support for an alpha channel/transparency.
