Inherits From: NSObject

Conforms To: NSColorPickingDefault NSObject (NSObject)

Declared In: AppKit/NSColorPicker.h

Class Description

NSColorPicker is an abstract superclass that implements the NSColorPickingDefault protocol. The NSColorPickingDefault and NSColorPickingCustom protocols define a way to add color pickers (custom user interfaces for color selection) to the NSColorPanel. The simplest way to implement a color picker is to create a subclass of NSColorPicker, instead of implementing the NSColorPickingDefault protocol in another kind of object. (To add functionality, implement the NSColorPickingCustom methods in your subclass.)

The NSColorPickingDefault protocol specification describes the details of implementing a color picker and adding it to your application's NSColorPanel; you should look there first for an overview of how NSColorPicker works. This specification is provided to document the specific behavior of NSColorPicker's methods.
