ColorField is a color picker and converter for Plone Archetypes.
- Eliminated tabindex.
- Tested with Plone-4.0b3.
- Initial release of eggified version. [taito.horiuchi]
If you are using zc.buildout and the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to manage your project, just do this:
Add Products.ColorField to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:[buildout]…eggs =…Products.ColorField
Tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug:[instance]recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance…zcml =Products.ColorField
Re-run buildout, e.g. with:$ ./bin/buildout
You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package from another package’s configure.zcml file.
Because its top level Python namespace package is called Products, this package can also be installed in Zope 2 as an old style Zope 2 Product.
For that, move (or symlink) the ColorField folder of this project (Products.ColorField/Products/ColorField) into the Products directory of the Zope instance it has to be installed for, and restart the server.
You can also skip the ZCML slug if you install this package the Zope 2 Product way.
Set OUTPUT_FORMAT in config.py of the field itself to have the color codes in HTMLColor, RGB, HexColor or PILColor. Default is HTMLColor.
In your custom Archetype, add:from Products.ColorField import ColorWidget, ColorField
Use it like a regular field/widget in your Type’s Schema.ColorField(‘my_color’,default=’#00FFFF’,output_format=’HexColor’,widget=ColorWidget(label=’My color’,allow_brightness=True)),
