border color is set to wrong colour in ms/access text control

Hi -
On my app, in MS/Access 2016, I try to programmatically change the color of a text control. The colour I want is a dar yellow that, both n photoshop or when  I define the color in the properties pane, is #EEB000, so I set the following code:

Me.frm_nome.BorderWidth = 3
    Me.frm_nome.BorderColor = &HEEB000

Open in new window

However, instead of the yellow I am always getting a blue.

can anyone help?

I've had issues with the hex codes as well.  Try using RGB colors instead:
 Me.frm_nome.BorderColor =  RGB(155,135,12) 

Open in new window

(You can use an online color chart to pinpoint the exact color you want)

Try this.
    Me.frm_nome.BorderColor = RGB(&HEE, &HB0, 0)
