A basic working example, include the following to any class you want the field on;

    private static $db = array(
        'MenuBackgroundColor' => 'Varchar(255)',

    public function getCMSFields()
        $fields = parent::getCMSFields();

        $fields->addFieldsToTab('Root.Main', array(
            ColorSwabField::create('MenuBackgroundColor', 'Megamenu background colour')

        return $fields;

Then simply include in the template in a class element

    <nav class="{$MenuBackgroundColor}">[...]</nav>  

The controller extension should make sure you've got access to the colour swabs so you don't need to double up the CSS file.

Add/Change colours

To modify the choice of colours you need to change two files.

  • js/color-swabs.js
  • css/color-swabs.css

For example: To add the colour black make the following changes

// js/color-swabs.js    
    var colorSwabs = [
/* css/color-swabs.css */
    .color-black-500 {
        background: #000000;

Want icons instead of colours?
