The colorpicker object uses an Operating System color picker dialog that lets you choose a color to be output as a Max RGB color. On the Mac OS, the Color Picker dialog that lets you choose colors in several different color spaces--red-green-blue (RGB), hue-saturation-value (HSV), web-safe colors, and the nostalgia-inducing crayon mode. On Windows, you are presented with a standard color picker dialog, including a selection of basic colors, custom colors, a color swatch and numerical input for red-green-blue (RGB), hue-saturation-luminance (HSL)
Sets the output format used by the colorpicker object. When set to zero, the output will be in RGBA format (four floating point numbers in the range 0. - 1.0). Setting this attribute to 1 (the default) will output RGB format (three integer values in the range 0 - 255).
