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?

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...
