Color.IsSystemColor Property


Gets a value indicating whether this Color structure is a system color. A system color is a color that is used in a Windows display element. System colors are represented by elements of the KnownColor enumeration.

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

Property Value


true if this Color was created from a system 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 IsSystemColor property is applied to a Color structure that is created by using the FromArgb method, IsSystemColor returns false, even if the ARGB value matches the ARGB value of a system color.
