Call color picker

Excuse me, how can I call this color selection tool, or if I want to call it in another software, or Rhino 6 or Rhino 5

Hi @Hershel, below python example works in Rhino 5, 6, 7 and 8 (windows):

import Rhino
import rhinoscriptsyntax as rs
import scriptcontext 
import System

from System.Drawing import Color

def DoSomething():
    rc, color = Rhino.UI.Dialogs.ShowColorDialog(Color.Red)
    if rc == True:
        print "Color: {}".format(color)


Can anyone tell me how to get the RGB values from this script?

I can get them in the print statement but I cannot seem to find a way to have them formatted into a string?



Hi @kiteboardshaper,

you can just get them from the color variable as properties eg:

str_color = "{},{},{}".format(color.R, color.G, color.B)
print str_color

does this help ?
