This simple custom widget accepts a list of colours when created, and presents these colours as an array of coloured buttons to click. Clicking on a button emits a signal with the clicked colour. Perfect to use in a bitmap drawing application.
Three widgets are provided —
PaletteHorizontal a linear horizontal palette
PaletteGrid a grid palette. This also accepts an optional second parameter
n_columns, which is the number of columns to lay the colours out in. The default is 5 (as seen below).
There is also a vertical layout
There are 3 built-in named colour-schemes paired12, category10 and 17undertones.
But you can also provide any list of colours you like when creating the widget.
PaletteGrid(['#000003', '#160B39', '#410967', '#6A176E', '#932567', '#BA3655', '#DC5039', '#F2751A', '#FBA40A', '#F6D542', '#FCFEA4'])
The palette provides only a single signal
.selected which is emitted when a colour is selected in the palette. This sends the selected colour, in the same format as it was when setting the palette.
palette = PaletteHorizontal(['#000003', '#160B39', '#410967']) palette.selected.connect(print)
The above would print to the console
#410967 as each colour was clicked.
