    Looking for a RAL color picker for my form

    Asked by Keukenadviesaanhuis on June 18, 2016 at 05:28 AM

    Hello,

     

    Does anyone know if there is an RAL color picker available?

    Im really in need of this to make my form complete.

    Or maybe one of the current color pickers wich i can add only values i like to use?

     

    RAL color chart (with HEX colors) is found here:

    http://www.ralcolor.com/

    A really nice kind of layout i like is found here: https://www.ralkleuren.com/kleurenwaaier 

     

    I can integrate this RAL picker to my form, but there is now way to select the color so it wont be send.

     

    Hope someone can help out.

    Thanks in advance!

    Unfortunately the color pickers available have only the hexadecimal system:

    If you only need a few colors, a workaround might be adding this code to a checkbox field or a radio-button:

    <span style="background-color: #BEBD7F"> RAL 1000</span>

    <span style="background-color: #C2B078"> RAL 1001</span>

    <span style="background-color: #C6A664"> RAL 1002</span>

     

    You can see here the final result:

    You can clone the demo form.

    I will still create a feature request so that a RAL color picker feature implementation might be taken into consideration. We'll contact you via this thread if we decide on its implementation.

    Carina, thanks for the quick answer.

    I noticed i can use the radio button, but the problem is i like to show around atleast 100 RAL colors. As you can imagine that will be too many radio buttons.

    The page url posted had a nice way to display the colors by main color, that makes it nice and small to integrate.

    If you manage to make a nice plugin like this you will be my hero! 

    Again thanks for the help so far.

    I made the request but I cannot give you an ETA for its implementation. As you need 100 colors, maybe you can use form collapses fields in order to have them split into different fields.

    You can take a look at the demo form:

    Thank you Carina.

    For now i used the widget with the iframe, they will need to put the color in a text field but for now it will work.

    Example: https://form.jotformeu.com/61673804028355 (first page choose 3rd option)

    ps. still working on the form
