Color is outside of range 0 to 15, inclusive.

See the "Error number" column if you are upgrading Visual Basic 6.0 applications that use unstructured error handling. (You can compare the error number against the Number Property (Err Object).) However, when possible, you should consider replacing such error control with Structured Exception Handling Overview for Visual Basic.

Starting with the least-significant byte, the returned value specifies the red, green, and blue values used to set the appropriate color in the RGB system used by the Visual Basic language.

This example uses the QBColor function to change to the color indicated by colorInteger. QBColor accepts integer values between 0 and 15.

Dim colorInteger As Integer 
' Use 4 for red.
colorInteger = QBColor(4)
