Hi all,

I would like to change the color of a panel to a custom color. I know the RGB values, but the properties are like "clBlue" etc.

Any ideas?

Or maybe...

Panel1.Color:=RGB(255,0,0); // Change color to red
Panel1.Color:=RGB(0,255,0); // Change color to green
Panel1.Color:=RGB(0,0,255); // Change color to blue
Panel1.Color:=RGB(100,100,100); // Change color to gray get the picture ;)

If you want to do it in the Object Inspector then you can double click on where it lists the Colors in the panels properties and then a windows will come up called 'Color'. After that click on 'Define Custom Colors' and then type in your RGB values or choose a color.
