hi,
you can use the
 edtCeldaMuestraBorde.Color := stringtocolor(edtCeldaColorFondo.Text);

Tcolor is an integer, so this will also do :

edtCeldaMuestraBorde.Color := integer(edtCeldaColorFondo.Text);

or if you have hex values :

edtCeldaMuestraBorde.Color := stringtocolor('$'+edtCeldaColorFondo.Text);
