Hi,

I have this OnPaint-methode to draw a border around
my borderless form:

        private void StickyNotes_Paint(object sender, PaintEventArgs e)
         {
            using (Pen pen = new Pen(Brushes.Silver, 2))
            {
                e.Graphics.DrawRectangle(pen, this.ClientRectangle);
            }
         }

But in stead of the pen color Silver I want to use this color: "#c2c4cb"!
How can I do that?

Who knows the answer and is willing to help me?

Greetings,

Peter Kiers

Try this-

 //store the color as a string
 string HexColor = "#c2c4cb";
 //use this to convert
 Color c = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml(HexColor);

using (Pen pen = new Pen(c, 2))
{
    ...
}

Thanks,
