This isn't a discussion about the color picker in the Inspector.
For a given project, I populate a field with hex color codes. For this, I use a drop down list with color names and hex codes that are taken from another table.
After the hex code has been filled in, the color of the field is set with conditional formatting. It would be nice if the values in the dropdown menu were already colored, but as its name says, a value list shows values and not formatting. And a value list does not allow to include container fields.
What other techniques would you use or suggest for a color selector? Colored buttons? Container fields marked as buttons that pass a value to a script?
