Examples

The following example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgs e, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code translates a Color structure to an integer that represents an OLE color, and then shows a message box with the resulting string.

public:
   void ToOle_Example( PaintEventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   {
      // Create an instance of a Color structure.
      Color myColor = Color::Red;

      // Translate myColor to an OLE color.
      int oleColor = ColorTranslator::ToOle( myColor );

      // Show a message box with the value of oleColor.
      MessageBox::Show( oleColor.ToString() );
   }
public void ToOle_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{
   // Create an instance of a Color structure.
    Color myColor = Color.Red;
             
    // Translate myColor to an OLE color.
    int oleColor = ColorTranslator.ToOle(myColor);
             
    // Show a message box with the value of oleColor.
    MessageBox.Show(oleColor.ToString());
}
Public Sub ToOle_Example(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create an instance of a Color structure.
    Dim myColor As Color = Color.Green

    ' Translate myColor to an OLE color.
    Dim oleColor As Integer = ColorTranslator.ToOle(myColor)

    ' Show a message box with the value of htmlColor.
    MessageBox.Show(oleColor.ToString())
End Sub
