This method translates a string representation of an HTML color name, such as Blue or Red, to a GDI+ Color structure.

The following example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code translates an HTML color name to a Color structure, and then uses that color to fill a rectangle.

public void FromHtml_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Create a string representation of an HTML color.
    string htmlColor = "Blue";
             
    // Translate htmlColor to a GDI+ Color structure.
    Color myColor = ColorTranslator.FromHtml(htmlColor);
             
    // Fill a rectangle with myColor.
    e.Graphics.FillRectangle( new SolidBrush(myColor), 0, 0, 
        100, 100);
}

public void FromHtml_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Create a string representation of an HTML color.
    String htmlColor = "Blue";

    // Translate htmlColor to a GDI+ Color structure.
    Color myColor = ColorTranslator.FromHtml(htmlColor);

    // Fill a rectangle with myColor.
    e.get_Graphics().FillRectangle(new SolidBrush(myColor), 0, 0, 100, 100);
} //FromHtml_Example
