Color.IsSystemColor Property

Gets a value indicating whether this Color structure is a system color. A system color is a color that is used in a Windows display element. System colors are represented by elements of the KnownColor enumeration.

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

public bool IsSystemColor { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if this Color was created from a system color 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 IsSystemColor property is applied to a Color structure that is created by using the FromArgb method, IsSystemColor returns false, even if the ARGB value matches the ARGB value of a system color.
