Type: System.Int32
Returns an Integer value representing an RGB color value from a set of red, green and blue color components.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

Green, Blue, or Red is outside of range 0 to 255, inclusive.

Application methods and properties that accept a color specification expect that specification to be a number representing an RGB color value. An RGB color value specifies the relative intensity of red, green, and blue to cause a specific color to be displayed.

If the value for any argument to RGB is greater than 255, 255 is used.

The following table lists some standard colors and the red, green, and blue values they include.

This example shows how the RGB function is used to return a whole number representing an RGB color value.

Dim red, rgbValue As Integer 
Dim i As Integer = 75
' Return the value for red.
red = RGB(255, 0, 0)
' Same as RGB(75, 139, 203).
rgbValue = RGB(i, 64 + i, 128 + i)
