I am wanting users to be able to click a button and choose the color they want the backround color of the textbox to be.  I then want the color number to be put in a hiddent textbox field.  I have written the code to save the color number just need the dialog box for color to pop up.
Thanks in advance

Were you able to get to the MVPS site ok?
