jQuery converter hex to rgb

I wrote this blog post for everyone that have searched for Hexadecimal to RGB converter and not found something according to their needs. This Hex-RGB converter is not only easy for installation, also it is written in jQuery and that makes it more easier for modification and customisation.

Hex – RGB jQuery Converter

hexToRgb: function(hex) {
var result = /^#?([a-fd]{2})([a-fd]{2})([a-fd]{2})$/i.exec(hex);
return result ? {
r: parseInt(result[1], 16),
g: parseInt(result[2], 16),
b: parseInt(result[3], 16),
rgb: parseInt(result[1], 16) + “, ” + parseInt(result[2], 16) + “, ” + parseInt(result[3], 16)
} : null;

This is the function that makes the conversion from Hex to RGB, if you want to see the rest of the code you can view the page-source of the DEMO or download the complete Example with all of the files included.

If you don’t want to experiment with random typing and guessing of your wanted color you can try jQuery Colour Picker and get the Hex code of your wanted color and then convert it to RGB here. Feel free to combine the code of these two jQuery pugins and make one with mutiple functionalities. If you make one please let me know, I will be more than happy to post it here!
