c
The Color structure to translate.

Return Value

The string that represents the HTML color.

Remarks

This method translates a Color structure to a string representation of an HTML color. This is the commonly used name of a color, such as "Red", "Blue", or "Green", and not string representation of a numeric color value, such as "FF33AA".

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgs e, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code translates a Color structure to a string representation of an HTML color, and then shows a message box with the resulting string.

[Visual Basic] 
Public Sub ToHtml_Example(e As PaintEventArgs)
' Create an instance of a Color structure.
Dim myColor As Color = Color.Red
' Translate myColor to an HTML color.
Dim htmlColor As String = ColorTranslator.ToHtml(myColor)
' Show a message box with the value of htmlColor.
MessageBox.Show(htmlColor)
End Sub
        
[C#] 
public void ToHtml_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{
// Create an instance of a Color structure.
Color myColor = Color.Red;
// Translate myColor to an HTML color.
string htmlColor = ColorTranslator.ToHtml(myColor);
// Show a message box with the value of htmlColor.
MessageBox.Show(htmlColor);
}
