Color Picker Examples and Reference


Default Color Picker

An example of a default Color Picker without any extra properties.

import dash
from dash.dependencies import Input, Output
import dash_html_components as html
import dash_daq as daq

app = dash.Dash(__name__)

app.layout = html.Div([
    daq.ColorPicker(
        id='my-color-picker-1',
        label='Color Picker',
        value=dict(hex='#119DFF')
    ),
    html.Div(id='color-picker-output-1')
])

@app.callback(
    Output('color-picker-output-1', 'children'),
    Input('my-color-picker-1', 'value')
)
def update_output(value):
    return 'The selected color is {}.'.format(value)

if __name__ == '__main__':
    app.run_server(debug=True)

Size

Set the size (width) of the color picker in pixels using the size property.

import dash_daq as daq

daq.ColorPicker(
  label="Small",
  size=164,
)

Label

Define the label and label position using the label and labelPosition properties.

import dash_daq as daq

daq.ColorPicker(
  label="Label",
  labelPosition="bottom"
)

Disabled

To disable the Color Picker set disabled to True.

import dash_daq as daq

daq.ColorPicker(
  label='Color Picker',
  disabled=True,
)

Hex Colors

Use hex values with the Color Picker by setting value=dict(hex='#<hex_color>')

import dash_daq as daq

daq.ColorPicker(
  label='Color Picker',
  value=dict(hex="#0000FF"),
)

RGB Colors

Use RGB color values with the Color Picker by setting:
value=(rgb=dict(r=<r_value>, g=<g_value>, b=<b_value>, a=<a_value>))

import dash_daq as daq

daq.ColorPicker(
    label='Color Picker',
    value=dict(rgb=dict(r=255, g=0, b=0, a=0))
)

id (string; optional):
The ID used to identify the color picker in Dash callbacks.

className (string; optional):
Class to apply to the root component element.

disabled (boolean; optional):
If True, color cannot be picked.

label (dict; optional):
Description to be displayed alongside the control. To control styling,
pass an object with label and style properties.

label is a string | dict with keys:

labelPosition (a value equal to: ‘top’ or ‘bottom’; default 'top'):
Where the indicator label is positioned.

persisted_props (list of values equal to: ‘value’; default ['value']):
Properties whose user interactions will persist after refreshing the
component or the page. Since only value is allowed this prop can
normally be ignored.

persistence (boolean | string | number; optional):
Used to allow user interactions in this component to be persisted when
the component - or the page - is refreshed. If persisted is truthy
and hasn’t changed from its previous value, a value that the user
has changed while using the app will keep that change, as long as the
new value also matches what was given originally. Used in
conjunction with persistence_type.

persistence_type (a value equal to: ‘local’, ‘session’ or ‘memory’; default 'local'):
Where persisted user changes will be stored: memory: only kept in
memory, reset on page refresh. local: window.localStorage, data is
kept after the browser quit. session: window.sessionStorage, data is
cleared once the browser quit.

size (number; default 225):
Size (width) of the component in pixels.

style (dict; optional):
Style to apply to the root component element.

theme (dict; default light):
