    Code to create a simple color picker based on an image:


    Two canvases are used. The first one reads the color from the image and the second one draws the selection circle.
    You can replace the image with any other image to change the color palete.
    Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    End Sub

    Sub pnlColors_Touch (Action As Int, X As Float, Y As Float)
    Dim cx = pnlColors.Width / 2, cy = pnlColors.Height / 2 As Float
    If Sqrt(Power(x - cx, 2) + Power(y - cy, 2)) > pnlColors.Width / 2 Then Return
    Dim clr As Int = cvsColors.Bitmap.GetPixel(X, Y) '<---- clr is the result
       Activity.Color = clr
       cvsOverlay.DrawCircle(X, Y, 
    20dipColors.Black, False3dip)
    End Sub
    File is available here:

    And now as a custom dialog:

    Sub btnSelectColor_Click
    Dim cw As ColorWheelDialog
    "Select Color")
    Wait For (cw) Color_Result(Success As Boolean)
    If Success Then
    Activity.Color = cw.ColorResult
    End If
    End Sub
    Depends on Dialogs library v4+ and B4A v7+.

    Hi Erel,
    could the colored image be created with code without any dependency from the png file?
    It will be great for a new dialog library i'm writing all based on b4a code only.

    I'm still looking for algorithms, I found them different in java, c and phyton ...
    I've read many guides and color studies ..
    Only now I'm more confused ... just have time to write other code to try the things you learned

    What I would really like to have is the drop down list of colors you have in the Designer. Is code for that available?
    I am talking about just the drop down pick list of colors, not the pallet.
