int b = (c % 32)*255/31; c /= 32;
int g = (c % 32)*255/31; c /= 32;
int r = (c % 32)*255/31;
COLORREF rgb = RGB(r,g,b);

That's it !!! it works!!! for any body else out there c = WORD

int b = (c % 32)*255/31; c /= 32;
int g = (c % 32)*255/31; c /= 32;
int r = (c % 32)*255/31;
COLORREF rgb = RGB(r,g,b);

Great stuff, I don't know why they don't make this available in the SDK.

Thanks again.
