Color Selection Combo Box

I have noticed that in several places in windows and in visual basic when you want to select a color there is a combo box which lists the names of the colors and a sample of each color.  I want to recreate this combo in one of my applications.  Im guessing i need to use the Imaegcombo control, but i cant find any way to insert images into that control without physicly creating an image (on the hard drive) for each color.  Is there any way to create the images dynamiclly or is that color selection box built in somewhere else?

use windows common dialog control and use ShowColor method to show color dialog box.


Private Sub Command1_Click ()
   ' Set Cancel to True.
   CommonDialog1.CancelError = True
   On Error GoTo ErrHandler
   ' Set the Flags property.
   CommonDialog1.Flags = cdlCCRGBInit
   ' Display the Color dialog box.
   CommonDialog1.ShowColor
   ' Set the form's background color to the selected
   ' color.
   Form1.BackColor = CommonDialog1.Color
   Exit Sub

ErrHandler:
   ' User pressed Cancel button.
   Exit Sub
End Sub
