    Jscolor Script?

    I am using the jscolor picker for the user to select color of text. I need multiple color pickers on one page.

    I am using these functions, because the HEX needs to be converted to RGB for output.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function updateInfo(color) {
        document.getElementById('info-r').value = color.rgb[0];
        document.getElementById('info-g').value = color.rgb[1];
        document.getElementById('info-b').value = color.rgb[2];
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function updateInfo(top-color) {
        document.getElementById('top-info-r').value = color.rgb[0];
        document.getElementById('top-info-g').value = color.rgb[1];
        document.getElementById('top-info-b').value = color.rgb[2];
    <script type="text/javascript" src="jscolor/jscolor.js"></script>

    HTML Code:
    <input name="color" class="color{onImmediateChange:'updateInfo(this);'}" value="000000" size="9">
    <input type="hidden" id="info-r" name="colorr"/>
    <input type="hidden" id="info-g" name="colorg"/>
    <input type="hidden" id="info-b" name="colorb"/>
    <input name="top-color" class="color{onImmediateChange:'updateInfo(this);'}" value="000000" size="9">
    <input type="hidden" id="top-info-r" name="topcolorr"/>
    <input type="hidden" id="top-info-g" name="topcolorg"/>
    <input type="hidden" id="top-info-b" name="topcolorb"/>
    The first color picker is working Name = "color", this is the code pulled directly from jscolor's site.

    Any ideas why the second one is not pulling the RGB colors?

    The object color is not define in the second function. The values color.rgb[0], color.rgb[1] and color.rgb[2] are not defined ! They must take the argument with : top-color.rgb[0], top-color.rgb[1] and top-color.rgb[2].
    Then the function is the same as the first, the name of the argument is only a local variable in the function which take the value with the function is called !

    There is no need of two functions. Perhaps could you define an other argument to distinguish the destination ?

    function updateInfo(element,color) {
        document.getElementById(element+'-r').value = color.rgb[0];
        document.getElementById(element+'-g').value = color.rgb[1];
        document.getElementById(element+'-b').value = color.rgb[2];
    Then the color piker call could be updateInfo('info',color) or updateInfo('top-info',top-color)
