#' Create a colour input control
#'
#' Create an input control to select a colour.
#'
#' A colour input allows users to select a colour by clicking on the desired
#' colour, or by entering a valid colour in the input box. Colours can be
#' specified as either names ("blue"), HEX codes ("#0000FF"), RGB codes
#' ("rgb(0, 0, 255)"), or HSL codes ("hsl(240, 100, 50)"). Use
#' \code{allowTransparent = TRUE} to allow selecting semi-transparent colours.
#' The return value is a HEX value by default, but you can use the
#' \code{returnName = TRUE} parameter to get an R colour name instead
#' (only when an R colour exists for the selected colour).
#'
#' When \code{allowTransparent = TRUE}, the user can type into the input field
#' any RGBA value, HSLA value, or 8-digit HEX with alpha channel You can also use
#' any of these values as the \code{value} argument as the initial value of the
#' input.
#'
#' @param inputId The \code{input} slot that will be used to access the value.
#' @param label Display label for the control, or `\code{NULL} for no label.
#' @param value Initial value (can be a colour name or HEX code)
#' @param showColour Whether to show the chosen colour as text inside the input,
#' as the background colour of the input, or both (default).
#' @param palette The type of colour palette to allow the user to select colours
#' from. \code{square} (default) shows a square colour palette that allows the
#' user to choose any colour, while \code{limited} only gives the user a
#' predefined list of colours to choose from.
#' @param allowedCols A list of colours that the user can choose from. Only
#' applicable when \code{palette == "limited"}. The \code{limited} palette
#' uses a default list of 40 colours if \code{allowedCols} is not defined.
#' @param allowTransparent If \code{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.
#' @param returnName If \code{TRUE}, then return the name of an R colour instead
#' of a HEX value when possible.
