Combo0 is your color deciding comboBox
Text2 is your color changing textbox

you can retrieve the preferred color numbers from the property view after making a color selection

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Private Sub Combo0_Change()
  2.     Select Case Combo0
  3.         Case 1
  4.             Text2.BackColor = 16777215 
  5.         Case Else
  6.             Text2.BackColor = 16744448
  7.     End Select
  8. End Sub
