Hex Color to RGB


Visual Basic 6 uses for the color format something like &H0000000&
How can I convert a color of this format to RGB for use in the .NET
I need this because the data I use are already stored in a database for use
in a Visual Basic 6 Application.

Thanks in advance

Color.FromArgb( Integer ) is the most likely candidate, as in

Dim c as Color _
= Color.FromArgb( &H000000& )

Or, of you have access to the RGB components instead,

c = Color.FromArgb( R, G, B )

'Dim c As Color = Color.FromArgb( &H0000000)'

For OLE colors:

'Dim c As Color = ColorTranslator .FromOle(&H0000 000)'.

'Color' has 'R', 'G', and 'B' properties.

(PHP4.3.4, GD2) How can I save a PNG using GD2 and insure that it saves as a palette-based (8-bit, 256-color) single-color transparancy?? Saving this way, I could be sure that an image loaded from a transparent gif could be saved as a png and the png would work in IE versions 5.5 and greater (IE has bug that messes up png transparancies which use full alpha channel). thanks for any help at all, -dg

I'm using PIL to generate some images which may be rotated at the user's option. When they are rotated, the original image is cropped in the new image (which is fine), and the corners are black (which is not, in this case). I can't find any documented way to change the default fill color (if that's what it is) for the corners, and PIL also doesn't seem to support a flood fill. I have created a flood fill in Python, which works but which...

I'm displaying an image that is also a link against a black background. In Netscape 7.1, the current background color is displayed as a horizontal bar below the image. This allows :hover effects that change the background color to have a visible effect, as this bar changes color. By default, it appears that the color is inherited from the body color, i.e. with no link style applied, the bar is black, and invisible against the background....

Hello, I am making a website where the user can choose a 'skin'. This works with asp en stylesheets. In the stylesheet, a number of tags are (re)defined.

Jakob Nielsen in his most recent Alertbox (http://www.useit.com/alertbox/20040503.html) tells web authors to change the color of visited links. I agree to his purpose: Help users understand where they have been. I also agree to the background: Too many web authors keep uniform link colors or their pages, thereby confusing the users. What I have a hard time agreeing to is his conclusion that web authors should deliberately change the...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
