I am able to get my font and color dialog to open and change to what ever I
want.  The code I am using is something like (below).  The problem is when I
hit the cancel button the property of the object will display.  For example,
if I hit cancel on the backgroud color it will turn black because the default
color for the dialog is blk.  I have tried to do something like (next below)
and when I do that it is still calling the default color.  What is the best
way to write for a color dialog?  How do I handle the cancel button?  


sub

 with dlgcolor
.showcolor
rtbcolor = color
end with

dim something as dialogresults
if something <> dailogresults.OK then
rtbcolor = color
end if

end sub

So sorry:

    Private Sub Button3_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button3.Click
        If ColorDialog1.ShowDialog = DialogResult.OK Then
            RichTextBox1.SelectionColor = ColorDialog1.Color
        End If
    End Sub
