Windows Phone (WP) is a family of mobile operating systems developed for smartphones as the replacement successor to Windows Mobile and Zune.  Windows Phone features a new user interface derived from Metro design language. Windows 10 Mobile succeeded Windows Phone 8.1 and emphasizes a larger amount of integration and unification with its PC counterpart—including a new, unified application ecosystem, along with an expansion of its scope to include small-screened tablets.

Introduction to R

R is considered the predominant language for data scientist and statisticians. Learn how to use R for your own data science projects.

I had a need for a “colour picker” for the nice original Windows Phone colour palette. The codes are impossible to remember, so I was looking for a method to point and click to copy a value for later to be pasted into a property pane.

As I wanted all values presented in the three often used formats for CSS, VBA, and as hex values - and had the colour values as an enumeration – I also needed some converter functions. Not much, and with a simple loop all field values could be set.

However, writing code for 63 fields looked like a daunting task. This is where WithEvents came in and solved that with a few handfuls of code.

I wrote it all up here as there are so few examples found demonstrating WithEvents:

with a reference to John Colby’s old tutorial on WithEvents for the interested reader. The only principal difference to John’s example is, that I didn’t use 63 variables but a collection (as I learned from Shamil Salakhetdinov) to hold the controls.

The colour palette of Windows Phone I have previously used here:
