Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgs e, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code translates a Color structure to an integer that represents a Windows color, and then shows a message box with the resulting string.

[Visual Basic] 
Public Sub ToWin32_Example(e As PaintEventArgs)
' Create an instance of a Color structure.
Dim myColor As Color = Color.Red
' Translate myColor to an OLE color.
Dim winColor As Integer = ColorTranslator.ToWin32(myColor)
' Show a message box with the value of winColor.
MessageBox.Show(winColor)
End Sub
        
[C#] 
public void ToWin32_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{
// Create an instance of a Color structure.
Color myColor = Color.Red;
// Translate myColor to an OLE color.
int winColor = ColorTranslator.ToWin32(myColor);
// Show a message box with the value of winColor.
MessageBox.Show(winColor);
}
