Create a modern Color Chooser with Java + Swing
A custom Color Chooser which does NOT make use of the built in JColorChooser class.
Inspired by Google’s color picker, I tried to achieve the same in Java using Swing.
A short video will follow…
First we need to create a BufferedImage to display the first part of the Color Chooser:
Note: it is not required, and maybe also not recommended, to store colors in a List in the first place.
We also need to create a BufferedImage for the slider:
And last but not least, the preview panel..
Actually this one is pretty simple, just create any JComponent which overrides the paintComponent(Graphics g) method. We use a JPanel because it is convenient.
These are the most important parts of the Color Chooser. But don’t worry, I will update this post constantly. Also complete source code will be available at GitHub soon.
