This lesson describes the ColorDialog control
Visual Basic offers a wide range of dialog boxes that allow the user to make standard selections and each of them has a very specific purpose.
The purpose of the ColorDialog is selecting a color.
This component displays a dialog that enables the user to select a color from a standard palette or from a custom color palette.
First you call its ShowDialog method to display a color selection dialog and then check if ShowDialog returns OK or Cancel if the user cancels.
The following code sets the dialog box's Color property to the background color of the CheckedListBox control. Meaning, it displays the dialog box and, if the user clicks OK, it sets the StatesList background color according to user's selection.
Private Sub ChangeColor_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles ChangeColor.Click If ColorDialog1.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then StatesList.BackColor = ColorDialog1.Color End If End Sub
