Javascript Question

Get color from wpColorPicker (Iris) after mouseup, keyup or done

I want to change fill color of SVG shape after user finish dragging on ColorPicker (wpColorPicker or IrisColorPicker) because there're dozen of SVG Shapes and every shape has a lot of circles, paths etc...

So i tried to find an event like [done, or something like that] in AutomatticIris but i failed only [change] is available Iris docs but because i get SVG shape from server using AJAX it's impossible to do this job in change event.


A common solution for these kind of problems is to clear and start a timer (by setTimeout) each time the change event occurs. So the timer only fires if the change event will not be fired for a certain time (the interval you set by setTimeout).

Here is a snippet that changes the color of the headline 1 second (1000 milliseconds) after the last change in the color picker:

    var color = null;
    var timer = null;
    var changed = function(){
        $("#headlinethatchanges").css( 'color', color);
        width: 400,
        hide: false,
        change: function(event, ui) {
            if (timer) clearTimeout(timer);
            timer = setTimeout(changed, 1000);
            color = ui.color.toString();
