import DxColorBox from 'devextreme-vue/color-box';

export default {
    components: {
        DxColorBox
    },
    data() {
        return {
            color: "#FF0000"
        };
    }
}
</script>
React
App.js
import React from 'react';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.common.css';
import 'devextreme/dist/css/dx.light.css';

import ColorBox from 'devextreme-react/color-box';

class App extends React.Component {
    constructor(props) {
        super(props);

        this.state = {
            color: "#FF0000"
        };
        this.handleValueChange = this.handleValueChange.bind(this);
    }

    handleValueChange(e) {
        this.setState({
            color: e.value
        });
    }

    render() {
        return (
            <ColorBox
                value={this.state.color}
                onValueChanged={this.handleValueChange}
            />
        );
    }
}
export default App;

The ColorBox accepts colors in hexadecimal ("#FF0000"), RGB ("rgb(255, 0, 0)") and RGBA ("rgba(255, 0, 0, 1)") formats, as well as color names. When an end user selects a color from the drop-down editor, the textual representation of the selected color is hexadecimal.
