Color (and other missing Joomla form types)

Color (and other missing Joomla form types) was created by Chris Paschen
I've just returned to Component Creator after a few months away, and I need to create some form types that are standard with Joomla 3 now (per docs.joomla.org/Form_field).

I esp. need the 'color' form type.

Is there a way to do this within Component Creator?
Or do I need to modify the code manually after CC is done generating the base component?

NOTE: I remember seeing a 'color' filter at some point, but now I can't find it for anything.

Thanks to anyone that can point me in the right direction.

Hi Chris,

There are a number of fields missing, and to alleviate this issue, I have suggested that they add a "CUSTOM" field type, that allows us to add the Joomla Field XML code we want displayed..

This means not having to constantly change the XML file after BUILD.

You can up-vote the request here..

The only other option is to add an XML override plugin, that allows you to create custom XML files, that over-ride the Component-Creator built XML files automatically..

I found a plugin for that method, and Jonas had some useful code to make a simple plugin if this works for you..

Cheers,
