Properties

PropertyDescription
NameThe name is a unique identifier for Color Picker widget.
PlaceholderA placeholder is text to show in the editor when there is no value. A common use of this is a search box that says in faint gray italicized text "Search..." which disappears as soon as the user starts to edit the text box. This is a useful alternative to a caption if you are constrained in space and asking for something simple of the user.
Accessibility
Tab indexThe tab index attribute specifies the tab order of an element. You can use this property to change the default tabbing order for widget access using the tab key. The value can range from 0 to 32767. The default is 0 and -1 makes the element non-focusable. NOTE: In Safari browsers, by default, Tab highlights only text fields. To enable Tab functionality, in Safari Browser from Preferences -> Advanced -> Accessibility set the option "Press Tab to highlight each item on a webpage".
Shortcut keyThe shortcut key property specifies a shortcut key to activate/focus an element. (*See below for details)
Default Value
ValueThis is the default value to display value for an editor widget. Note that the display value is just what the user sees initially, and is not always the dataValue returned by the widget.
Behavior
Read OnlySelecting this checkbox property prevents the user from being able to change the data value of a widget.
ShowShowing determines whether or not a component is visible. It is a bindable property.
Load on Demand (visible only when show property is bound to a variable)When this property is set and show property is bound, the initialization of the widget will be deferred till the widget becomes visible. This behavior improves the load time. Use this feature with caution, as it has a downside (as we will not be able to interact with the widget through script until the widget is initialized). When show property is not bound the widget will be initialized immediately.
DisabledIf the disabled property is true (checked) the value of the editor cannot change. The widget becomes display-only.
Auto CloseThis property defines when to close the colorpicker popover. Outside Click: picker popover will close when user clicks anywhere outside the picker area. Always: picker popover will close when user clicks anywhere on the page. Disabled: picker popover will close only when user press enter key on the picker input field.

*Shortcut key: The shortcut key property specifies a shortcut key to click the button. The way of accessing the shortcut key is varying in different browsers:
