Font Color Button on Form

Experts,

How can I change the text color of text on a form if the field is rich text memo by way of a button or some other method?
The form opening does not allow me to change the text color unless I hightlight the text and hover over it.  Only after I do this the little "ghost" image appears with the text color options.  The menu is greyed out with the text options.

thank you

Hover over text

I assume there would be a button placed on the form that when clicked with open the text coloring options.

You can do this but the code would be complex.
(Detect the selected text, then use SQL/code to "Color" it...

This is all before (as pdvsa states...) you create some sort of "Select a Color" functionality...

Too much trouble, IMHO...

Why not just use the hover method? ...that is what it is for.
why reinvent the wheel...?

If it is too difficult then I will use the hover method.  It just seems as though there would be a button functionality for this.   thanks

"too difficult"
?

You are the first person here, that I know of, that refers to this a s being "too difficult"...?

There is no button functionality to do this because that would be "too difficult" to devise... (as I stated)

Again, it can be done, but not worth all the trouble IMHO...
