How to convert rgb to long color in vb?

I'm using some shapes in my vb form.

I need to change background color, but vb use long color like this &H00E0E0E0&
While I use photoshop to get my color right in rgb color and html color #FFFFFF

Is there any tool to convert rgb or html color to vb color?

I know I can use command like:
s1.BackColor = RGB(239, 231, 222)
I don't like it, i want in design time.

iColor=&hccccff 'the color in hex same syntax as html
s1.BackColor=rgb((iColor And &HFF),((iColor And &HFF00&) \ 256),((iColor And &HFF0000) \ 65536))

You can use either of those 2, simply create a new form, place the following code into it. Adjust the parameters to your needs.

Private Sub Form_Load()
    MsgBox GetVBFromRGB(10, 10, 10)
End Sub

Private Function GetHexFromRGB(ByVal RVal As Byte, ByVal GVal As Byte, ByVal BVal As Byte) As String
    Dim TmpHex As String
   
    TmpHex = Left("0" & Hex(BVal), 2) & _
             Left("0" & Hex(GVal), 2) & _
             Left("0" & Hex(RVal), 2)
    GetHexFromRGB = "&H" & TmpHex & "&"
End Function

Private Function GetVBFromRGB(ByVal RVal As Byte, ByVal GVal As Byte, ByVal BVal As Byte) As String
    Dim TmpHex As String
   
    TmpHex = Left("0" & Hex(RVal), 2) & _
             Left("0" & Hex(GVal), 2) & _
             Left("0" & Hex(BVal), 2)
    GetVBFromRGB = "#" & TmpHex
End Function

Sorry I think that is not the answer i need.
&H00E0E0E0& is not hex.

HTML to VB color
or RGB to VB color is fine.

anyway, thanks for your help guys.

... &H00E0E0E0& is not hex...
yes it is...
&H is the VB-way to say its a hex
00 is just zeros
E0 if the hex for blue
E0 is the hex for green
E0 is the hex for red
& is the VB-way for long integer

sorry to disappoint you dodyrw, but this IS hex... stewi explained that pretty nicely... apart from that, you can still use the GetVBFromRGB function, which converts RGB to VB. just in case you dont trust the Hex that comes from the GetHexFromRGB function...

:) sorry I'm to0 haste, lol
it's hex.   :)

vb use 8 digit hex: &H00E0E0E0&
but those codes produce only 6 digits.


Got it! VB use reverse RGB
#EFE7DE
--> &H00DEE7EF

:D
thanks.

Hi all..

I guess this is the answer to all doubts:

myControl.BackColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#ffffff")

That is for VB.NET of course, but I just wanted to add the comment here, since I found this page looking for that very answer...
