Color.G Property

Gets the green component value of this Color structure.

Namespace:  System.Drawing
Assembly:  System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)

'Declaration
Public ReadOnly Property G As Byte

Property Value

Type: System.Byte
The green component value of this Color.

The color of each pixel is represented as a 32-bit number: 8 bits each for alpha, red, green, and blue (ARGB). Each of the four components is a number from 0 through 255, with 0 representing no intensity and 255 representing full intensity. Likewise, G is a value from 0 to 255 with 0 representing no green and 255 representing fully green.

The following code example demonstrates the A, R, G, and B properties of a Color, and the Widening member.

This example is designed to be used with a Windows Form. Paste the code into the form and call the ShowPropertiesOfSlateBlue method from the form's Paint event-handling method, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

Private Sub ShowPropertiesOfSlateBlue(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)
    Dim slateBlue As Color = Color.FromName("SlateBlue")
    Dim g As Byte = slateBlue.G
    Dim b As Byte = slateBlue.B
    Dim r As Byte = slateBlue.R
    Dim a As Byte = slateBlue.A
    Dim text As String = _
    String.Format("Slate Blue has these ARGB values: Alpha:{0}, " _
       & "red:{1}, green: {2}, blue {3}", New Object() {a, r, g, b})
    e.Graphics.DrawString(text, New Font(Me.Font, FontStyle.Italic), _
        New SolidBrush(slateBlue), _
        New RectangleF(New PointF(0.0F, 0.0F), _
        Size.op_Implicit(Me.Size)))
End Sub
