Works with any WordPress theme

Add the ability
to select custom color swatches

Advanced Color Picker compliments any form type and lets users pick custom colors in the form. It supports two main color formats – HEX and RGB. Thanks to the intuitive UI, it is pretty easy to select the desired color from either the palette or picker container. The addon allows determining the opacity level to get a highlight/lowlight shade of the parent color.

Addon Functionality:
  • Palette & Picker containers
  • RGB & HEX values supported
  • Color Opacity select
submitted colors to users meta

How to set up

As you can see, all PRO version add-ons can be easily installed and activated via JetFormBuilder Dashboard.

After installing and activating the plugin, the new settings section will appear in the Color Picker Field block’s settings.

Advanced Color Picker Settings

Advanced Color Picker modifies the existing Color Picker Field block; therefore, the new settings are located in the Field Settings section. To find it, navigate to JetForms > Forms and click to edit one of the created forms. If there are none, press the “Add New” button and build a form. Next, click on the plus-shaped button in the upper left corner of the page editing window. Type “Color Picker Field” in the Search bar and drag-and-drop this block to the desired area.

In the right-side menu, you will see the Field Settings section with several new settings. Let’s have a closer look at them.

  • Use Advanced Color Picker. This toggle switcher allows you to enable/disable the advanced color picker functionality;
  • Value Format. This drop-down list stores the available formats of the return value. There are two options here – “HEX” and “RGB.” The difference between these two options is the used color code. HEX returns a 6-figure value, whereas RGB uses a combination of three numbers. You can use either one of them unless you work with JetEngine meta fields. In this case, the HEX format is preferable;
  • Show Alpha (opacity). This toggle lets you activate/deactivate the switcher that can be used to adjust the color opacity level.

Tip:To make sure that the color chosen by the user upon registration is added to their metadata, you’ll need JetEngine. First, create a Meta Box for Users and add the Color Picker meta fields to it. Next, link these meta fields to the corresponding Color Picker fields of the form itself. You can find the fields in the User Meta section of the post-submit action editing window.
