The ColorPicker widget allows selecting a color using the browser’s color-picking widget support.

For more information about listening to widget events and laying out widgets refer to the widgets user guide. Alternatively you can learn how to build GUIs by declaring parameters independently of any specific widgets in the param user guide. To express interactivity entirely using Javascript without the need for a Python server take a look at the links user guide.


For layout and styling related parameters see the customization user guide.

colorpicker = pn.widgets.ColorPicker(name='Color Picker', value='#99ef78')


ColorPicker.value returns a hexadecimal RGB value:



The ColorPicker widget exposes a number of options which can be changed from both Python and Javascript. Try out the effect of these parameters interactively:

pn.Row(colorpicker.controls(jslink=True), colorpicker)
