The color picker.

The color picker was a feature, technically a morph, in Scratch that allows a user to choose a color to put into a color argument.

The Picker

The color picker contained 141 hues, with 99 shades of each, for a total of 13 959 colours. The X axis determined the color (hue) and the Y axis determined the shade. On the right was a grayscale color chooser, which only had gray (an equal amount of each base color).

The color picker was opened by clicking on a color insert. The mouse changed to a paintbrush, and any color in the Scratch window could be chosen; not just inside the color picker itself.


The color picker itself was only used in the Set Pen Color to () block.

Color arguments were also used in the Touching Color ()? and Color () is Touching ()? blocks, but without the dropdown menu.
