ColorPicker (<b:colorPicker />) since 0.8.5

<b:colorPicker> is a simple inputText that display color swatches. The component provides a set of configuration to display the swatch in different positions and with different color configurations (RGB, HSL, with or without alpha.)


Basic usage


Basic RGB Color picker aligned left with opacity active


Basic HEX Color wheel aligned right without opacity and popup position in bottom-right corner

Basic RGB Color Picker with predefined color swatches

Mobile devices

On a mobile device, you should prevent the user from zooming into the page because this interferes with the colorpicker. Simply add these lines to the <h:head /> of your JSF page:


Labels, required fields and error messages

You can add a label by adding the attribute label. The label is also used by the JSF messages. To give you maximum flexibility, you can suppress automatic rendering of labels by adding renderLabel="false".

Required inputs fields and their labels both bear the CSS class bf-required. By default, this adds an asterisk to the label.

If the field has a FacesMessage, one of the CSS classes bf-info, bf-warning, bf-error or bf-fatal, depending on which error severity the message has. The latter two classes color the label red.

If there's no message, the field and its label bear the pseudo CSS class bf-no-message.

Responsive design since 0.9.0

You can use all the attributes controlling the responsive behaviour of <b:column /> also with <b:colorPicker />:

Visibility depending on screen size since 0.8.6/0.9.0

You can play also with col-*-*, visible and hidden attribute, as any bootstrap elements. For example:


Visible on >= md:
Visible on <= sm:
Visible on sm...lg:
Visible on xs and md:
Col-md-6, offset 2:
