The Kendo UI for jQuery FlatColorPicker component is a powerful tool for picking and editing colors. It supports editing through a palette that renders a predefined set of colors and through a gradient component that renders an HSV canvas. The FlatColorPicker component supports resetting values through a ShowClearButton parameter, reverting the value through a dedicated section for preview and current color, and Apply & Cancel buttons for committing the change.

This demo shows how you can use both the gradient and the palette views of the FlatColorPicker to change the colors for an element on the page.
