    I am developing a program in VB and I need a color palette. I could write one but I see that MS Word has one similiar to what I need initially, I need some additional options.

    Is there any site that has the program code for this palette that I could download and then modify for my needs?

    Thank you for your help.

    Lola2001,

    Thank you! I think the second one is quite close to what I am looking for.

    Lola2001 sent me some palette examples which I have tried to copy. The second one created by Gary Beebe is quite close to my needs. My current problem is that I don't know what control to use for the individual colors.

    I have created a palette with text boxes but it does not seem right for two reasons, first when I move the cursor I lose the selection and second the hex code for the colors does not match the documentation in VB. For example VB documentation shows red as hexFF0000 but when I use vbRed the hex is 255 and documentation for blue is hex0000FF but vbBlue is FEFFF8.

    Thanks again
