ColorWheel

ColorWheel is a library for Android which contains helpful views which can be used to pick an ARGB color.

Screenshots

Gradle

From version 1.1.13 the library will be hosted on Maven Central Repository because JCenter announced its deprecation in the future. This migration lead to change of the group id which is now com.github.antonpopoff.

The minimal required Android version is 16 (Android 4.1).

// For version 1.1.13 and above
implementation 'com.github.antonpopoff:colorwheel:1.1.13'

// For version 1.1.12 and below
implementation 'com.apandroid:colorwheel:1.1.12'

In case of any problems make sure that jCenter or Maven Central repositories are specified in your build.gradle file:

repositories {
    mavenCentral() // Since version 1.1.13.
    jcenter() // For version 1.1.12 and below.
}

Getting Started

For version 1.1.13 and above:

<com.github.antonpopoff.ColorWheel
    android:id="@+id/colorWheel"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent" />

<com.github.antonpopoff.gradientseekbar.GradientSeekBar
    android:id="@+id/gradientSeekBar"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent" />

For version 1.1.12 and below:

<com.apandroid.colorwheel.ColorWheel
    android:id="@+id/colorWheel"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent" />

<com.apandroid.colorwheel.gradientseekbar.GradientSeekBar
    android:id="@+id/gradientSeekBar"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent" />

Basic Usage

ColorWheel

To set/get a RGB color you can use ColorWheel.rgb property:

val colorWheel = findViewById<ColorWheel>(R.id.colorWheel)

val previousColor = colorWheel.rgb

colorWheel.rgb = Color.rgb(13, 37, 42)

You can set a listener via ColorWheel.colorChangeListener property:

colorWheel.colorChangeListener = { rgb: Int -> /* Code */ }

Important note: keep in mind that ColorWheel is a two-dimensional implementation of HSV color model. Two-dimensional in that case means that its brightness (value) component of HSV is always set to 1. Because of that, ColorWheel can't display every single color supported by HSV.

Therefore if you set a color which can't be displayed it will be transformed to the closest HSV color which can be displayed by ColorWheel. In order to pick colors which can't be displayed by ColorWheel you can additionally use GradientSeekBar.

GradientSeekBar

GradientSeekBar view draws a vertical or horizontal bar filled with a linear gradient of two colors. You can use the view to pick an intermediate color in-between.

Color

To pick an intermediate ARGB color you can use GradientSeekBar.argb property:

val color = gradientSeekBar.argb

To set/get start/end colors you can use the following properties and methods:

val startColor = Color.argb(0, 0, 0, 0)
val endColor = Color.argb(0xff, 0xff, 0xff, 0xff)

gradientSeekBar.startColor = startColor
gradientSeekBar.endColor = endColor
gradientSeekBar.setColors(startColor, endColor)

If you want to change an intermediate color programmatically you can use GradientSeekBar.offset property. Its value lies within the range from 0f to 1f and reflects how close the intermediate color to startColor or endColor properties.

You can set a listener via GradientSeekBar.colorChangeListener property:

gradientSeekBar.colorChangeListener = { offset: Float, argb: Int -> /* Code */ }

Brightness

It's impossible to pick all different colors from ColorWheel because it's only two-dimensional and the brightness (value) component of HSV is always set to 1.

To compensate that you can use GradientSeekBar and its setBlackToColor(color) extension. This method sets black color as startColor and supplied color as endColor. This gives you a possibility to pick additional shades of a color picked from ColorWheel.

Alpha

If you want to use GradientSeekBar to pick the alpha value of a color in range from 0 to 255 you can use the following extension:

GradientSeekBar.setTransparentToColor(color: Int, respectAlpha: Boolean = true)

This method takes an ARGB color and sets the transparent version of it as startColor and an opaque version as endColor. respectAlpha parameter determines whether or not the thumb's position will be adjusted based on the alpha value of the color you supplied.

To get the alpha value of the current color you can use GradientSeekBar.currentColorAlpha extension property.

You can use GradientSeekBar.setAlphaChangeListener extenstion to set a listener that has additional alpha parameter which lies withing the range from 0 to 255.

gradientSeekBar.setAlphaChangeListener { offset: Float, color: Int, alpha: Int -> /* Code */ }

Additional Customizing

You can use the following XML attributes to additionally customize ColorWheel and GradientSeekBar.

ColorWheel

XML Attribute Property Description
tb_thumbRadius thumbRadius Sets ColorWheel's thumb radius
tb_thumbColor thumbColor Sets ColorWheel's thumb color
tb_thumbStrokeColor thumbStrokeColor Sets ColorWheel's thumb stroke color
tb_thumbColorCirlceScale thumbColorCircleScale Sets ColorWheel's thumb color circle size which is relative to thumbRadius. This value is in range from 0 to 1. If it set to 1 it will have the same size as thumbRadius

GradientSeekBar

For version 1.1.13 and above:

XML Attribute Property Description
tb_thumbRadius thumbRadius Sets GradientSeekBar's thumb radius
tb_thumbColor thumbColor Sets GradientSeekBar's thumb color
tb_thumbStrokeColor thumbStrokeColor Sets GradientSeekBar's thumb stroke color
tb_thumbColorCirlceScale thumbColorCircleScale Sets GradientSeekBar's thumb color circle size which is relative to thumbRadius. This value is in range from 0 to 1. If it set to 1 it will have the same size as thumbRadius
gsb_barSize barSize Sets width(vertical)/height(horizontal) of GradientSeekBar's gradient bar depending on it's orientation
gsb_barCornersRadius cornerRadius Sets GradientSeekBar's gradient bar corners radius
gsb_startColor startColor Sets GradientSeekBar's startColor
gsb_endColor endColor Sets GradientSeekBar's endColor
gsb_offset offset Sets GradientSeekBar's offset
gsb_orientation orientation Sets GradientSeekBar's orientation. Possible values: vertical/horizontal

For version 1.1.12 and below:

XML Attribute Property Description
