Color palette

With these settings, the edit field will then be shown as a color field that is filled with the currently selected color. Clicking on this opens a palette where the colors can be selected.

Use HTML5 control (if supported by browser)




HTML5 has its own color palette. However, not all browsers support HTML5. With this setting, the HTML5 control is used if the user accesses the page with an HTML5 browser. If the browser does not support HTML5, the default color palette is used instead. On mobile end devices, the color palette will be presented as in the image below.

Show color palette




This option, and the option below, refer to the default palette, not to the HTML5 control. With this setting, the entire default palette is shown. On mobile end devices, the color palette will be presented as in the image below.

Show color palette only




If this setting is activated as well, only the left-hand area - meaning just the palette itself - is shown. For more information about the color picker, please click here.
