How to apply CSS color on parent element using a color picker?

Tags: javascript,jquery,html,css

Problem :

I have a color picker which appears by clicking on pencil glyphicon. I just want to apply color from color picker on list elements i.e. which is grand parent of pencil glyphicon. I have a following ruby front end code:

 <% categories.each(function (category) { %>
    <li id="<%= %>" class="Round-boxes my-sortable">

      <% if(category.get("is_owner")) { %>   
        <div class="color-picker-pencil picker">
           <span class="glyphicon glyphicon-pencil"></span>
      <% } %> 
  <% }); %>

I am following this tutorail according to which I have a following JS code with a slighter change.

JS code:

 applyColor: function(event) {
   myel = $(
     layout: 'hex',
     submit: 0,
     colorScheme: 'dark',
     onChange: function(hsb, hex, rgb, myel, bySetColor) {

       $(myel).css('background-color:', '#' + hex);
   }).keyup(function() {



What Should i do to achieve this ? Thanks in advance.

Solution :

It was just a syntax error in applyColor function and a little code change, I replaced following code in place of existing:

    applyColor: function(event){
      onChange:function(hsb,hex,rgb,myel,bySetColor) {

        myel = $(myel).parent();






And every thing works fine. See the line two lines of code inside onChange body. And compare it with code in question.
