Molecule color picker

Molcolpicker.gif Appcolpicker.gif

The code below was used to create the palettes shown above. It's a pure javascript color picker that can be used for changing color of selected part of molecule, applet background, or any feature of the model (cartoons, surfaces, etc.).

Sample of use

Pick color for currently selected part of molecule:
<script type="text/javascript">
writeColorPicker("atoms", "0", "h")
</script>
<br>
Pick color for background:
<script type="text/javascript">
writeColorPicker("background", "0", "h", "D9EBFF")
</script>
<br>
Pick color for cartoons:
<script type="text/javascript">
writeColorPicker("cartoons", "0", "v")
</script>

/* Instructions for calling function:
      objectToBeColored = 'atoms', 'background', etc.
                          (any object in Jmol syntax, to which the picked color will be applied)
      jmolAppletID = any ID assigned to the applet upon which the function must act
                     (by default, applets get the ID 0, 1, etc. in the order they are written to the page)
      makeVerticalTable = 'v' or 'vert' for vertical table, 'h' or none for horizontal table
      defaultColor = RRGGBB color code, or false (don't offer picking the default color)
