"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi nenwmn,

Use the ColorTranslator....

    Dim MyColor As Color = Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#ff99ccff")

Be sure to inculde the hash (#) at the beginning of the string.

Regards,

Wayne
