Dropdown for Color Choice

Question

Hello, I have a dropdown that lists color names using text like red, light blue etc.  I would like to include the actual color or just show the color choices without the text.  I could also just use a list box of color choices as well.  Has anyone done this?

You can use emojis. Would you like the values to be actual colors, as well, instead of text? You can use the emojis for the values, as well, but I wouldn't really recommend that, you might have a hard time if you're gonna use it on other things, but, if not, feel free to do so.

Thanks for the reply but my colors are like "hardrock maple" or "slate gray" so they're real colors based on jpegs.  I guess I need to show the jpeg color in the dropdown or listbox.  Any other ideas use java etc?

ahh, I don't know, I believe only radio buttons accept images

use img tag for the display . i.e. <img src="https://multimedia.3m.com/mws/media/1484762F/3630-61-slategray-swatch.jpg" alt="test" width="50px"/>

that totally works!! I used the same color just for testing.  But you're right that it only works with radio selection.  I have 25 colors so either it rolls off page to the right or down.  Maybe formatting them into a 5x5 grid is a bridge too far?

add <br/> to the display where you want it to cut off (i.e. <img src="https://multimedia.3m.com/mws/media/1484762F/3630-61-slategray-swatch.jpg" alt="test" width="50px"/> <br/>)
