I need some kind of function that can i change a hex color to lighter or darker.

Example:
------------------------

strColor = LightenColor("#000000", 50)
strColor2 = LightenColor("#FFFFFF", 25)

Function LightenColor(strHex, strValue)
      'strHex holds the color
      'strValue holds how much to change
      'Code to lighten color
End Function

Function DarkenColor(strHex, strValue)
      'strHex holds the color
      'strValue holds how much to change
      'Code to lighten color
End Function
------------------------

Thanks in advanced.

Something along these lines ... intPercentage can be a positive number to lighten and negative to darken:

Function LightenDarken(intR, intG, intB, intPercent)
    Dim r : r = Int((intR * intPercent) / 100)
    Dim g : g = Int((intG * intPercent) / 100)
    Dim b : b = Int((intB * intPercent) / 100)
    If r > 255 Then r = 255
    If g > 255 Then g = 255
    If b > 255 Then b = 255
    If r < 0 Then r = 0
    If g < 0 Then g = 0
    If b < 0 Then b = 0
    r = Hex(r)
    g = Hex(g)
    b = Hex(b)
    If Len(r) = 1 Then r = "0" + r
    If Len(g) = 1 Then g = "0" + g
    If Len(b) = 1 Then b = "0" + b
    LightenDarken = r + g + b
End Function
