Color.IsKnownColor Property


Gets a value indicating whether this Color structure is a predefined color. Predefined colors are represented by the elements of the KnownColor enumeration.

 property bool IsKnownColor { bool get(); };
public bool IsKnownColor { get; }
member this.IsKnownColor : bool
Public ReadOnly Property IsKnownColor As Boolean

Property Value

true if this Color was created from a predefined color by using either the FromName(String) method or the FromKnownColor(KnownColor) method; otherwise, false.


This property does not do a comparison of the ARGB values. Therefore, when the IsKnownColor property is applied to a Color structure that is created by using the FromArgb method, IsKnownColor returns false, even if the ARGB value matches the ARGB value of a predefined color.
