Getting Started

This section explains how to create a default ColorPicker and to configure the ColorPicker component.

Dependencies

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

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

Installation and configuration

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

npm install -g @vue/cli

npm install -g @vue/cli-init

Start a new project using below Vue CLI command.

vue init webpack-simple quickstart

cd quickstart

npm install

Install Syncfusion ColorPicker packages using below command.

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

Registering ColorPicker component using Vue.use()

Import the ColorPicker Plugin from the Essential JS 2 Vue package and register the same using Vue.use() with Component Plugin as its argument.

Refer to the code snippet given below.

import Vue from 'vue';
import { ColorPickerPlugin } from '@syncfusion/ej2-vue-inputs';

Vue.use(ColorPickerPlugin);

export default {}

By registering component plugin in Vue, all child directives are also globally registered. We can also use Vue.Component() to register ColorPicker. Refer here to know more about component registration.

Initialize ColorPicker

Add the EJ2 Vue ColorPicker using <ejs-colorpicker> to the <template> section of the App.vue file in src directory.

<template>
<ejs-colorpicker></ejs-colorpicker>
</template>

<script>
import Vue from 'vue';
import { ColorPickerPlugin } from '@syncfusion/ej2-vue-inputs';
Vue.use(ColorPickerPlugin);

export default {}
</script>

Adding CSS Reference

Add ColorPicker component’s styles as given below in <style> section of the App.vue file.

<style>
@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';
</style>

Run the application

Now run the npm run dev command in the console, it will build your application and open in the browser.

The following example shows a default ColorPicker.

{% tab template=‘color-picker/default’, isDefaultActive=true %}

<template>
<div class='wrap'>
    <h4>Choose Color</h4>
    <ejs-colorpicker></ejs-colorpicker>
</div>
</template>

<script>
import Vue from 'vue';
import { ColorPickerPlugin } from '@syncfusion/ej2-vue-inputs';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);
Vue.use(ColorPickerPlugin);

export default {}
</script>

<style>
@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';

.wrap {
  margin: 0 auto;
  width: 300px;
  text-align: center;
}
</style>

{% endtab %}

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.

{% tab template=‘color-picker/default’ %}

<template>
  <div class='wrap'>
    <h4>Choose Color</h4>
    <ejs-colorpicker :inline="true" :showButtons="false"></ejs-colorpicker>
  </div>
</template>

<script>
import Vue from 'vue';
import { ColorPickerPlugin } from '@syncfusion/ej2-vue-inputs';
import { enableRipple } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

enableRipple(true);
Vue.use(ColorPickerPlugin);

export default {}
</script>

<style>
@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';

.wrap {
  margin: 0 auto;
  width: 300px;
  text-align: center;
}
</style>

{% endtab %}

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.
