Hello Everyone,

   I'm porting an application from vb6 to vb.net and the colors I use are wrong. For example in a picturebox I would display the color red in vb6 but now it shows a different color. I think maybe there is a problem with using the following line of code:
system.drawing.colortranslation.fromole (selectedcolor) 

Open in new window


Any help would be appreciated!

Hello !

Could it be "colortranslator" instead of translation ?

What is the formaat of "selectedcolor" ?

It is supposed to be a color in the form of an integer (HTML style).

Ex. : Red would be &HFF0000 and Green would be &HFF00

For 'normal' colors your can use Color.FromARGB or ColorTranslator.FromWin32. Use FromOle when in VB6 you used 'system' colors - vbButtonFace, vbWindowsText etc
