after asking for a function to set a color by HEX values (here), I created a small custom widget to show any valid HEX color values as a preview. Because the HEX colors can have a opacity/transparency value as postfix, I added this too.
Setting a background color is just as possible as firing an error event (MissingColor)
Inside the widget
In use: color without and with opacity
[customWidget-HEX-ColorViewer-3 (Opac) (Tulip).json|attachment]
Disclaimer: this widget comes as is. You use this widget at your own risk and without any guarantee or liability.
I hope it is useful
