ColorBox is a component that lets you select any predefined color with preview. There are two predefined palettes available:
- cpDefault (some frequently used named colors)
- cpFull (all named colors)
This component was designed for cross-platform applications.
The download contains the component, and a patch to make use of the cpFull option.
The download can be found on the Lazarus CCR Files page.

Creation at runtime
To create the component at runtime use the following code :
procedure TForm1.Form1Create(Sender: TObject); begin cbColorBox := TColorBox.Create(Self); cbColorBox.Parent := Self; cbColorBox.Left := 100; cbColorBox.Top := 100; cbColorBox.Palette := cpFull; end;
Make sure you don't forget to declare a global variable cbColorBox.
