    Hello, I have a question related to binding colors to a column in FlexGrid. I would like to show the information as an , and I thought it would be as simple as the code below.

    <c1-flex-grid-column binding="Color" header="Color" width="150">
                <input type="color" disabled/>

    However, it needs a value to be defined, although I’m binding it in the column. How can I rewrite it? Thanks

    Hi, While we are using the template or CellTempalte, we need to specify the values and these should be evaluated. Hence to render the Input with the colors, please use the following code snippet:

        function getColorCode(color){
            var _color = document.createElement("div");
   = color;
            return RGBToHex(window.getComputedStyle(_color).color);
        function RGBToHex(rgb) {
           // Choose correct separator
           let sep = rgb.indexOf(",") > -1 ? "," : " ";
           // Turn "rgb(r,g,b)" into [r,g,b]
           rgb = rgb.substr(4).split(")")[0].split(sep);
           let r = (+rgb[0]).toString(16),
              g = (+rgb[1]).toString(16),
              b = (+rgb[2]).toString(16);
           if (r.length == 1)
              r = "0" + r;
           if (g.length == 1)
              g = "0" + g;
           if (b.length == 1)
              b = "0" + b;
           return "#" + r + g + b;
    <c1-flex-grid id="inlineEditGrid" auto-generate-columns="false" style="height:400px">
        <c1-items-source read-action-url="@Url.Action("GridReadData")"></c1-items-source>
        <c1-flex-grid-column binding="ID" width="80" align="right" is-read-only="true"></c1-flex-grid-column>
        <c1-flex-grid-column binding="Country" width="*"></c1-flex-grid-column>
        <c1-flex-grid-column binding="Product" width="*"></c1-flex-grid-column>
        <c1-flex-grid-column binding="Start" width="*"></c1-flex-grid-column>
        <c1-flex-grid-column binding="Active" width="*"></c1-flex-grid-column>
        <c1-flex-grid-column binding="Color" header="Color" width="150" template="<input type=color value='${getColorCode(item.Color)}'  disabled/>">
