Probably a simple one, but I'm not sure where to find it. Normally it's easy if the name of the string was called 'black', 'white', etc. But I'm using RGB values now, aka like FFFFFF = white 000000 = black to adjust things. Reason being is it will be configurable in a INI file so it is a string that has 'FFFFFF' for example.

How can I convert this to System.Drawing.Color, in for example, a .backcolor of a picturebox?

Hi Valleriani,

    You can do it by,
     
       
.BackColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#FFFFFF")

Open in new window
