DIM Screen(20) as String

Private Sub Command1_Click()
For H = 1 To Picture1.Height - 15 Step 15
For W = 1 To Picture1.Width - 15 Step 15
Colorvalue$ = Right$("0000" + Hex$((Picture1.Point(W, H))), 6)
Blue = Val("&H" + Mid$(Colorvalue$, 1, 2))
L$ = L$ + Chr$(blau)
Next
Command2.Caption = Int((H / Picture1.Height) * 100) + "%"

Blue = Val("&H" + Mid$(Colorvalue$, 1, 2))
    L$ = L$ + Chr$(blau)

The VAL statement cannot accept "&Hxxxx" as an arguement so BLUE is forever returning zero. CHR$() will generate an error when passed a zero.

I see it looks like you're trying to convert a hex string color value back into a numeric. Your approach will not work. Try:

MSN$ = ucase$( mid$( colorvalue$, 1, 1) )  ' Get MS digit
LSN$ = ucase$( mid$( colorvalue$, 2, 1) )  'Get LS digit
hx = "123456789ABCDEF" 'Position in string corresponds to hex value, zero not used
value = instr( hx$, msn$ ) * 16 + instr( hx$, lsn$ )   'Value will have decimal equiv of hex

Command2.Caption = Int((H / Picture1.Height) * 100) & "%"

Not  100) + "%"

Both '+' and '&' will work.
The norm is to use '&' to avoid confusion with numeric calculations.
