Angular Bootstrap Color Picker

Angular Color Picker - Bootstrap 4 & Material Design

Angular Bootstrap Color Picker is a component which you can use when writing online shops, clothing creators or other functionalities that require the user to provide some color.


Basic example MDB Pro component Live Example

How it works: To function correctly, the Color Picker plugin requires you to use the template refference (#your-id="mdb-color-picker") on the mdb-color-picker element and then assign this identifier to the [mdbColorPickerToggle]="your-id" directive. If you want to use any of the methods built into the plugin (e.g. copying to the clipboard), use this method first by referring to the template ref name, which you set earlier - e.g.(click)="your-id.copyToClipboard('color')".

The basic version of the Color Picker plugin - adapted to use with the MDB Angular Free version.


        <button [mdbColorPickerToggle]="picker" mdbBtn color="primary" size="sm" mdbWavesEffect>Show color picker
        </button>
        <mdb-color-picker class="col-xs-12" #picker="mdb-color-picker" [colorPalette]="colorPalette">
          <div class="color-picker-switch">
            <button mdbBtn color="primary" mdbWavesEffect size="sm" (click)="picker.changeColorType()">RGBA / HEX
            </button>
          </div>
          <div class="color-picker-buttons">
            <button mdbBtn color="primary" class="p-2" mdbWavesEffect (click)="picker.copyToClipboard('color')">Copy
              color
            </button>
            <button mdbBtn color="primary" class="p-2" mdbWavesEffect (click)="picker.clearColor()">Clear</button>
            <button mdbBtn color="primary" class="p-2" mdbWavesEffect (click)="picker.addColorToPalette()">Add color
            </button>
            <button mdbBtn color="primary" class="p-2" mdbWavesEffect (click)="picker.copyToClipboard('palette')">Copy
              palette
            </button>
          </div>
        </mdb-color-picker>
      

        import {Component, ViewChild} from '@angular/core';
        import {MdbColorPickerComponent} from 'mdb-color-picker';

        @Component({
        selector: 'app-basic-color-picker',
        templateUrl: './basic-color-picker.component.html',
        styleUrls: ['./basic-color-picker.component.scss']
        })
        export class BasicColorPickerComponent {
        @ViewChild(MdbColorPickerComponent, { static: true }) colorPicker: MdbColorPickerComponent;
        colorPalette: Array<{ rgbaColor: string, hexColor: string }> = [

        }
      

        mdb-color-picker {
        opacity: 0;

Modules used

In order to speed up your application, you can choose to import only the modules you actually need, instead of importing the entire MDB Angular library. Remember that importing the entire library, and immediately afterwards a specific module, is bad practice, and can cause application errors.

    // MDB Angular Pro
      import { MdbColorPickerModule } from 'mdb-color-picker'
