Introduction

The Color Chooser Sliders tab allows you to select a color using sliders for different color models:

Display

Aside from the different color model, all of the different slider choices work the same way. At the top of each slider screen is 1 or 3 text fields showing the current slider values formatted as selected. Tapping a field allows you to use the keyboard to enter a specific value. The entered value must be valid for the currently selected format. Hide the keyboard by tapping outside of the text field.

Under the text fields are 2 or 4 formatting choices. The following formats are supported (not by all color models):

Features

Under the formatting options are the sliders. Depending on the color model there are 1 or 3 sliders, one for each color component of the color model. Moving the slider to the right increases the value for the component. Each slider has a color bar under it showing what color will be selected if the slider is moved to that position. Changing one slider updates the color bars under the other sliders.

Due to conversion factors and rounding errors it is possible you may notice subtle changes in color values as you change formats. This is expected behavior and will not affect the colors chosen. However, you may notice much larger changes when switching between color models. Since each color model has a different range of valid values and different degrees of freedom there is not always a one-to-one conversion. Keep this in mind as you switch back and forth between color models.
