How do I show the RRGGBB value for a color in Visual Studio (I happen to be using VS 2008 beta--but I think it was the same with VB 2005)?

I'm in the color palette in image editor and I've chosen my color with the eyedropper.  Now, how do I know the daggan RRGGBB value?  I really hope I'm missing something easy.

I also don't know how to show a RRGGBB color chooser when I'm designing a style or some such thing?

    When you choose the backcolor of an object select Custom and right click on one of the last two rows. It will display the RGB pallete.

    I think I'm doing a different combination.  I'm looking at an existing picture (happens to be a .jpg).  However, your instructions gave me enough pointers to see it.  Thanks.  I'd spent a very frustrating hour or so trying to figure it out.
