Create a Simple Color Picker Android App [Seekbar Support]

This post will let you create a simple Color picker android application which will return the HEX code from the values set by R,G, and B labeled seekbars. In this application you can not only get the HEX value of the color generated but you can also set the color as the application background. This app is created by 3 seekbars and 1 EditText and 2 buttons.

The value of the seekbars are extracted form the getProgress() method. and the obtained values from R,G, and B are converted to hex using toHexString() method and finally they are concatenated together for the HEX code of the RGB.


The Hex Code generated when tapped on the generate Button
The Background Color changes with corresponding value of Hex code when tapped on Set It 

Lets have a glimpse on the basic concepts of the
Fetching values from the Seekbars


Setting the value of the Hex Code box from the Seekbars


Changing the Background color from the Hex Code

rl.setBackgroundColor(Color.rgb(r, g, b));
/* rl is the relative layout variable which was declared on the onCreate method

rl=(RelativeLayout)findViewById(; */
