Color.IsNamedColor Property

Gets a value indicating whether this Color structure is a named color or a member of the KnownColor enumeration.

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

public bool IsNamedColor { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if this Color was created by using either the FromName method or the FromKnownColor method; otherwise, false.

This property does not do a comparison of the ARGB values. Therefore, when the IsNamedColor property is applied to a Color structure that is created by using the FromArgb method, IsNamedColor returns false, even if the ARGB value matches the ARGB value of a predefined color.
