I need the RGB values of the color orange (couldn't find it in MSDN or in the Windows books that I have).  If possible, it would be great to get a link a place where they have a complete list of RGB values.
    Thanxs,
         Glenn

There isn't _a_ RGB for orange because there isn't _a_ orange.  You usually can use any value that you think looks close.  

Is this for some situation where you ned to match some specific color?

Orange - RGB(255, 165, 0)

There isn't a complete list of RGB values.

Here is a color table for some common colors.

You can simply open the Paint application, choose the Options/Edit Colors... menu, then press the Define Custom Colors >> button to get any RGB values.

Thanxs Chensu for the great link!  I knew orange was probably a 2 to 1 ratio of red to blue with no green (I initially tried 255,127,0) but I wasn't sure of the exact ratio.

Nietod: I'm working on some graphics stuff using Direct3D and I needed to represent the color orange on a rotating cube.

   Thanxs for everyones comments.
