updateColourInput(session, inputId, label = NULL, value = NULL,
  showColour = NULL, palette = NULL, allowedCols = NULL,
  allowTransparent = NULL, returnName = NULL)

Arguments

session

The session object passed to function given to shinyServer.

inputId

The id of the colour input object.

label

The label to set for the input object.

value

The value to set for the input object.

showColour

Whether to show the chosen colour as text inside the input, as the background colour of the input, or both (default).

palette

The type of colour palette to allow the user to select colours from. square (default) shows a square colour palette that allows the user to choose any colour, while limited only gives the user a predefined list of colours to choose from.

allowedCols

A list of colours that the user can choose from. Only applicable when palette == "limited". The limited palette uses a default list of 40 colours if allowedCols is not defined.

allowTransparent

If TRUE, enables a slider to choose an alpha (transparency) value for the colour. When a colour with opacity is chosen, the return value is an 8-digit HEX code.

returnName

If TRUE, then return the name of an R colour instead of a HEX value when possible.

Details

The update function sends a message to the client, telling it to change the settings of a colour input object.
This function works similarly to the update functions provided by shiny.
Any argument with NULL values will be ignored.
