How can I add an external Color picker to my form?
Here is a very simple method to add a color picker to a text input in ChronoForms v5. This was contributed by user Surgit.
Using the JSColor color picker
JSColor is a lightweight picker that does not require jQuery (or MooTools) and is very simple to use.
Download the latest release of JSColor here where you can also see a demo and documents.
Unzip the file and copy the jscolor folder to the components/com_chronoforms5/extras/ folder on your site. If this doesn't exist you may need to create it.
In your form Designer tab add a Text Box element and, in the settings, add jscolor to the Class box. (Note: some earlier versions used color as the class.)
<?php echo JUri::root().'components/com_chronoforms5/extras/jscolor/jscolor.js'; ?>
Save your form and test and voila ! it should be working.
