Color Control

Elementor color control displays a color picker field with an alpha slider. It includes a customizable color palette that can be preset by the user. Accepts a scheme argument that allows you to set a value from the active color scheme as the default value returned by the control.

The control is defined in Control_Color class which extends Base_Data_Control class.

Note that when using the control, the type should be set using the \Elementor\Controls_Manager::COLOR constant.

label string The label that appears above of the field.
description string The description that appears below the field.
show_label bool true Whether to display the label.
label_block bool false Whether to display the label in a separate line.
separator string default Set the position of the control separator. Available values are default, before, after and none. default will position the separator depending on the control type. before / after will position the separator before/after the control. none will hide the separator.
alpha bool true Whether to allow alpha channel.
scheme array The color scheme to display in the control.
