Hi guys

I need to save all the color values ​​of the elements in the pages of my site and put them in a database. I thought I'd do it this way:

First thing I'm going to pick up the rgb values ​​of each element so

$("*").each(function (e) {



then in the function createColorArray store into an array all the values ​​that are passed

function createColorArray(rgbColor) {

     //Create rgb array


and finally remove duplicate items from my array

function removeDoupe(ar) {

        var temp = {};

        for (var i = 0; i < ar.length; i++)

            temp[ar[i]] = true;

        var r = [];

        for (var k in temp)


        return r;


now my question is, how recommended to create the array? directly inside the $ ("*") or in a dedicated function as I'm thinking? also i need than once removed duplicates in the new array "clean" as well as the rgb value I would have also given the number of times that value was in the original. Some example code?

As I mentioned in the comments, why not check for duplicates earlier? A simple example:

var colors = [];


    $('*').each(function (i, el) {


        var $element = $(el),

            color = $element.css('background-color');


        if (!~$.inArray(color, colors))
