Note: The widget shown is not included its just to prove the concept that its possible!

This simple color wheel allows you to do just what a color wheel is supposed to do.

Comes with all necessary features that should make it possible to make a proper widget with it:

  • Function Helpers that allow for linearcolor, color and byte conversions to hexadecimal values as strings and vice versa as well as getting the pixel under the cursor.
  • Events such as getting and setting the colors (setting does automatically update the pin) as well as mouse detection for when the widget is pressed and released.


Its all just 1 Widget, there are no hooks or weird tricks in store, simply drag and drop and there you go!

If you are curious about the code its all clean with proper comments incase you want to understand the insides!
