Get the RGB values from the custom color in visual studio

Hi Experts,

I am running microsoft visual studio. I have a gui that prompts the user to select a custom color from the color dialog box.

Below is the code I have currently to get the hue, saturation, and luminosity.

Unfortunately, I cannot find a way to directly get the RGB values, which I would like to use instead of those values.
Can you please replace the snippet of code below with the code that would get teh RGB values.

THanks,

Dennis

	private: System::Void button1_Click(System::Object^  sender, System::EventArgs^  e) {
 
				 this->colorDialog1->ShowDialog();
 
				 // Write the hue to the screen which is measured in degrees, ranging from 0.0 through 360.0, in HSB color space.
 
				 this->textBox1->Text = safe_cast<IConvertible ^>(colorDialog1->Color.GetHue())->ToString(nullptr);
 
				 // Write the brightness to the screen which ranges from 0.0 through 1.0, where 0.0 represents black and 1.0 represents white.
 
				 this->textBox6->Text = safe_cast<IConvertible ^>(colorDialog1->Color.GetBrightness())->ToString(nullptr);
 
				 // Write the saturation to the screen which ranges from 0.0 through 1.0, where 0.0 is grayscale and 1.0 is the most saturated.
 
				 this->textBox2->Text = safe_cast<IConvertible ^>(colorDialog1->Color.GetSaturation())->ToString(nullptr);
