I have used the following to reset button color:

Note that btn12 has no settings (its blank and gets its style from a css file). So instead of: btn.BackColor = ""; or btn.BackColor = null; I have used btn.BackColor = btn12.BackColor;

At line 14 (var c = btn12.BackColor;) no settings for btn12 reads c="{Name=0, ARGB(0,0,0,0)}", and
At line 15 (c = btn.BackColor;) the settings for the current btn reads c="{Name=Orange, ARGB(255,255,165,0)}",

Question: Can I then replace line 5 (btn.BackColor = btn12.BackColor;) with:

btn.BackColor = "{Name=0, ARGB(0,0,0,0)}";

Because neither of btn.BackColor = ""; or btn.BackColor = null; work.

Thank you.
 int i;
       for (i = 1; i < 11; i++)
        {
            Button btn = (Button)this.FindControl("btn" + i.ToString());
           btn.BackColor = btn12.BackColor;
        }


        if (Session["pressedButton"] != null)
        {
            string strButton = Session["pressedButton"].ToString();
            Button btn = (Button)this.FindControl(strButton);
            btn.BackColor = Color.Orange;
            var c = btn12.BackColor;
            c = btn.BackColor;
        }

You would use something of this sort, or System.Drawing.Color.Orange if you want to reference by name.
btn .BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.FromArgb(0, 0, 0, 0);

Hi Randy,

This gives black background to the buttons. It doesn't clear its backcolor property. I understand your logic but there has to be something else.

{Name=0, ARGB(0,0,0,0)}   <-- name argument is not set to zero in your code and I don't know how this part is done.

that will give A black, rgb 000 is black if your trying to clear it, (make it transparent)
btn.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;

btn.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Transparent;

makes it transparent. It is not the same as nothing set.

Therefore, transparent setting doesn't allow css setting work. It just makes the buttons transparent.

Hmm.
You can also try one of these:
btn.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.FromName("0");

Open in new window

or
btn.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Empty;

Open in new window

or
btn.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.FromName(null);

First two work okay:

btn.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.FromName("0");
btn.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.Empty;


but not the last:
btn.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.FromName(null);

Thanks,

Mike
