    How do I set the PictureBox.BackColor to a non-System.Drawing.Color value?

    I'm trying to set the following:

    Code:
    MyPictureBox.BackColor = &HC000&
    MyPictureBox.BackColor = RGB(255, 255, 0)
    I get the following error:

    Value of type 'Integer' cannot be converted to 'System.Drawing.Color'


    If I try the following:

    Code:
    MyPictureBox.BackColor.FromArgb(255, 255, 0)
    I get the following warning:

    Access of shared member, constant member, enum member or nested type through an instance; qualifying expression will not be evaluated.
