Color Picker Palette(s) more than one

  • I’m creating a multiple Color Pickers to help my users pick colors, but I want to offer theme custom palettes which I’ve been able to do using this..

    However I want two different color pickers to have two different palettes. The code I currently have makes one palette apply to both the color pickers. See the two images attached.

    How can I make one palette apply to color_primary and another palette apply to color_secondary?

    Here is the code I have so far – I’m using WordPress functions.php to enter the code.

    function my_acf_color_picker_palette_primary() {
    <script type="text/javascript">
    (function($) {
    	acf.add_filter('color_picker_args', function( args, $field ){
    	// find a specific field
    	var $field = $('color_primary');	
    	// do something to args
    	args.palettes = ['#5ee8bf', '#2f353e', '#f55e4f']
    	// return
    	return args;
    add_action('acf/input/admin_footer', 'my_acf_color_picker_palette_primary');*
  • The value in $field passed to your filter should have information about the field. I’m not sure what the index is but this information should include the field key console.log($field);. You should test this value and might be able to use different palettes for different fields (but I’m not sure about any of this)

  • For anyone else trying to do this, you can get the field key with:

    Now you can do something like this:

    if ($'key') == 'field_609a8f6d92e06') {
        args.palettes = [ "#F00", "#0F0", "#00F" ];
    } else if ($'key') == 'field_60a64e4b2f452') {
        args.palettes = [ "#FF0", "#0FF", "#F0F" ];
  • For anyone where $'key') is invalid, the following code worked for me.

    The main difference is that you’re targeting $field[0]['dataset']['key'].

    // Set the default color palette for certain fields
    function set_acf_color_picker_default_palettes() {
    let setDefaultPalette = function() {
        acf.add_filter('color_picker_args', function( args, $field ){
            // Find the field key
            let targetFieldKey = $field[0]['dataset']['key'];
            // Set color options for the field
            // if field is accordion_icon_background_color
            if ( 'field_60d621b2f0e04' === targetFieldKey ) {
                args.palettes = [ '#999', '#ae241a', '#004990' ];
            // Return
            return args;
    add_action('acf/input/admin_footer', 'set_acf_color_picker_default_palettes');
