oleColor

The OLE color to translate.

Return Value

The Color structure that represents the translated OLE color.

The following example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code translates an OLE color value to a Color structure, and then uses that color to fill a rectangle.

public void FromOle_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Create an integer representation of an OLE color.
    int oleColor = 0xFF00;
             
    // Translate oleColor to a GDI+ Color structure.
    Color myColor = ColorTranslator.FromOle(oleColor);
             
    // Fill a rectangle with myColor.
    e.Graphics.FillRectangle( new SolidBrush(myColor), 0, 0, 
        100, 100);
}

public void FromOle_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Create an integer representation of an OLE color.
    int oleColor = 0xFF00;

    // Translate oleColor to a GDI+ Color structure.
    Color myColor = ColorTranslator.FromOle(oleColor);

    // Fill a rectangle with myColor.
    e.get_Graphics().FillRectangle(new SolidBrush(myColor), 0, 0, 100, 100);
} //FromOle_Example
