Color Hex Values?

Color Hex Values?

Color Hex Values?

Is there anyway to store used colors in a variable in hex format? I've tried using a variable of type string to accomplish this, but the color is always stored as a numeric value.

04080FFH will be stored as 4227327.

How is the translation prevented? Is it possible to assign a color to an elelment using a numeric value?

RE: Color Hex Values?

Color Values are stored in numbers (LONG integers) and HEX values are just a representation of it. Why don't you write a function to represent it in HEX? I think there was a DEC to HEX function posted somewhere as Freeware. If I find it I shall post it.

RE: Color Hex Values?

Thank you for your response. I can't think of a reason why HEX values are converted and stored as an INT. - but I guess it's enough to know what it does.
