ColorPicker Alpha

Posted 4 months ago by Avatar Antoine Picard

Hi !

I'm using your colorPicker and I was thinking about something. Why when we set no alpha (only #123456 for instance) it's automatically considered as a FF alpha ? For my usage, it would be nicer to replace by 00. It might be a good idea to be able to choose if we want this behavior or the other.

I would think that it would be confusing for the end user to enter a value and then not see anything on the swatch, due to it being fully transparent.  For some background, we fill in full alpha if you don't specify an alpha, because that is basically how all web colors (in HTML, CSS, etc.) work.
