Examples

The following code example shows how to add an array of type Int32 representing custom colors to CustomColors. This example requires that the code is run from within a Form.

System::Windows::Forms::ColorDialog^ MyDialog = gcnew ColorDialog;

// Allows the user to select or edit a custom color.
MyDialog->AllowFullOpen = true;

// Assigns an array of custom colors to the CustomColors property
array<int>^temp0 = {6916092,15195440,16107657,1836924,3758726,12566463,7526079,7405793,6945974,241502,2296476,5130294,3102017,7324121,14993507,11730944};
MyDialog->CustomColors = temp0;

// Allows the user to get help. (The default is false.)
MyDialog->ShowHelp = true;

// Sets the initial color select to the current text color,
// so that if the user cancels out, the original color is restored.
MyDialog->Color = this->BackColor;
MyDialog->ShowDialog();
this->BackColor = MyDialog->Color;
System.Windows.Forms.ColorDialog MyDialog = new ColorDialog();
// Allows the user to select or edit a custom color.
MyDialog.AllowFullOpen = true ;
// Assigns an array of custom colors to the CustomColors property
MyDialog.CustomColors = new int[]{6916092, 15195440, 16107657, 1836924,
   3758726, 12566463, 7526079, 7405793, 6945974, 241502, 2296476, 5130294,
   3102017, 7324121, 14993507, 11730944,};

// Allows the user to get help. (The default is false.)
MyDialog.ShowHelp = true ;
// Sets the initial color select to the current text color,
// so that if the user cancels out, the original color is restored.
MyDialog.Color = this.BackColor;
MyDialog.ShowDialog();
this.BackColor =  MyDialog.Color;
Dim MyDialog = New ColorDialog()
' Allows the user to select or edit a custom color.
MyDialog.AllowFullOpen = True
' Assigns an array of custom colors to the CustomColors property.
MyDialog.CustomColors = New Integer() {6916092, 15195440, 16107657, 1836924, _
   3758726, 12566463, 7526079, 7405793, 6945974, 241502, 2296476, 5130294, _
   3102017, 7324121, 14993507, 11730944}

' Allows the user to get help. (The default is false.)
MyDialog.ShowHelp = True
' Sets the initial color select to the current text color,
' so that if the user cancels out, the original color is restored.
MyDialog.Color = Me.BackColor
MyDialog.ShowDialog()
Me.BackColor = MyDialog.Color

Remarks

Users can create their own set of custom colors. These colors are contained in an Int32 composed of the BGR (blue, green, red) values necessary to create the color. For more information on the structure of this data, see Color.

Custom colors can only be defined if AllowFullOpen is set to true.
