Render ColorPicker from Code behind

ColorPicker can be rendered from the code behind by initializing the required properties in controller and passing those properties via ViewData or Model to the client side.

The following code illustrates the initialization of ColorPicker properties in the controller.

  • c#
  • //Namespace to get the JavaScript (ColorPicker) component properties
    using Syncfusion.JavaScript.Models;
    
    namespace MvcApplication.Controllers
    {
        public class ColorPickerController : Controller
        {
            // GET: ColorPicker
            public ActionResult ColorPickerFeatures()
            {
                //Initializing the ColorPicker model
    
                ColorPickerProperties ColorObj = new ColorPickerProperties();
    
                //Initializing the datasource and other properties
                ColorObj.ShowPreview= true;
                ColorObj.Value = "#278787";
    
                //Passing ColorPicker properties using the ViewData
                ViewData["ColorModel"] = ColorObj;
                return View();
            }
        }
    }

    Binding the ColorPicker properties passed via ViewData from the controller in the client side as below.

  • cshtml
  • @{
        Html.EJ().ColorPicker("searchCustomer",(Syncfusion.JavaScript.Models.ColorPickerProperties)ViewData["ColorModel"]).Render();
    }
