I am working on an online mapping application. One of the functions available to the user is to place text anywhere on the map image. <BR><BR>Right now the user can specify the text, font, and font size and the text location. <BR><BR>What I need is a means of letting the user specify the color of the text in hex format from their browser. The end users are not expected to know hex colors, so some type of "picker" is needed. <BR><BR>I've thought about creating a new window with a table containing all of the websafe colors, each in their own TD tag and link each td back to the opener. Something like this:<BR><BR><table><BR> <tr><BR> <td bgcolor="#FFCC00" onmousedown="opener.SetColor('#FFCC00'); ">Â*</td><BR> </tr><BR></table><BR><BR><BR>Call me lazy if you like, but I have to admit, I hate the idea of having to look up the hex values for 215 colors and then writing - by hand- all of those td tags.<BR><BR>Does anyone know of an easier way? Is there a Java applet that you know of that can be used instead?
