Color Selector For User

I have a user that wants to associate colors with entries in a table.  I want to popup the MS color selector, have the user select the color they want to associate with that record and then store the selected color representation in the record.

I have integrated the MS Access file picker into applications but never the color selector.

What do I need in the app to have the color selector pop up and what does the color selector return?

I have never called up the color picker dialog box either...

In the mean time, ...You can certainly build your own.
Here is one I did years ago:
Home Made Color Picker

If no one else chimes in, I'll post a sample...
