Getting started with Angular ColorPicker component

This section explains how to create a default ColorPicker and demonstrate the basic usage of the ColorPicker module.

Dependencies

The list of dependencies required to use the ColorPicker module in your application is given below:

|-- @syncfusion/ej2-angular-inputs
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-angular-base
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-base
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-inputs
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-buttons
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-popups
    |-- @syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons

Setup Angular environment

You can use Angular CLI to setup your Angular applications. To install Angular CLI use the following command.

npm install -g @angular/cli

Create an Angular application

Start a new Angular application using below Angular CLI command.

ng new my-app
cd my-app

Installing Syncfusion ColorPicker package

To install ColorPicker package, use the following command.

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-angular-inputs --save

Adding ColorPicker module

Import ColorPicker module into Angular application(app.module.ts) from the package @syncfusion/ej2-angular-inputs.

import { NgModule }      from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';

// Importing Colorpicker module from Syncfusion ej2-angular-inputs package.
import { ColorPickerModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-inputs';

import { AppComponent }  from './app.component';

@NgModule({
  imports:      [ BrowserModule, ColorPickerModule ], // Declaration of ColorPickerModule into NgModule.
  declarations: [ AppComponent ],
  bootstrap:    [ AppComponent ]
})
export class AppModule { }

Adding Syncfusion ColorPicker component

Modify the template in app.component.ts file to render the ColorPicker component.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-root',
  template: `<!-- To render ColorPicker. -->
             <input ejs-colorpicker type="color" id="colorpicker" />`
})
export class AppComponent  { }

Adding CSS reference

Add ColorPicker component’s styles as given below in style.css.

@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-popups/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons/styles/material.css";
@import "../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-inputs/styles/material.css";

Running the application

Run the application in the browser using the following command:

ng serve

The following example shows a default ColorPicker component.

Preview
app.component.ts
app.module.ts
main.ts
import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-root',
    template: `<h4>Choose Color</h4>
               <!-- To render ColorPicker. -->
               <input ejs-colorpicker type="color" id="colorpicker" />`
})

export class AppComponent { }
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { ColorPickerComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-inputs';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);

/**
 * Module
 */
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule,FormsModule
    ],
    declarations: [AppComponent, ColorPickerComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { AppModule } from './app.module';

enableProdMode();
platformBrowserDynamic().bootstrapModule(AppModule);

Inline type

By default, the ColorPicker will be rendered using SplitButton and open the pop-up to access the ColorPicker. To render the ColorPicker container alone and to access it directly, render it as inline. It can be achieved by setting the inline property to true.

The following sample shows the inline type rendering of ColorPicker.

Source
Preview
app.component.ts
app.module.ts
main.ts
import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
    selector: 'app-root',
    template: `<h4>Choose Color</h4>
               <!-- To render inline ColorPicker. -->
               <input ejs-colorpicker type="color" id="colorpicker" [inline]="true" [showButtons]="false" />`
})

export class AppComponent { }
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { FormsModule } from '@angular/forms';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { ColorPickerComponent } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-inputs';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);

/**
 * Module
 */
@NgModule({
    imports: [
        BrowserModule,FormsModule
    ],
    declarations: [AppComponent, ColorPickerComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { AppModule } from './app.module';

enableProdMode();
platformBrowserDynamic().bootstrapModule(AppModule);

The showButtons property is disabled in this sample because the control buttons are not needed for inline type. To know about the control buttons functionality, refer to the showButtons sample.
