Dealing with User's Screen Color
Posted on 2000-02-16
I wrote a program using VB6 while my PC was running Win98 and was set to 800x600 True Type (32bit). The graphic colors looked great on my PC but when I tested it on another PC that was set to 256 Color it looked bad.
How do I accommodate the different color settings between PCs so that my program will look good no matter what the user's PC color setting is? Someone suggested WinAPI functions, CreatePalette, SelectPalette, and RealizePalette. I either need sample code or a good on-line source that explain exactly what this does and how to code it. If you don’t feel that is the way to handle the problem, what is?
Thanks for the help.
