Remember in DOS when all you had was 65k colours to choose from yet could only display 256
colors on the screen at any one time, well...

People used to make cool faders by altering the Color Registers for RGB values, so you could make the Standard red color go from anything between 000000 - FFFFFF , is this possible in windows? I want to make a color scrolling rainbow fader of some text ?

Any Suggestions?

- Thanks

In DOS you used a screenmode with 8-bit color-depth (256 colors), if you use a bitmap you can change this to 8-bit color-depth by setting TBitmap.PixelFormat to pf8bit. Then you can play with the palette.
