expression. RestoreOriginalColors

_expression_A variable that represents a PictureFormat object.


The RestoreOriginalColors method corresponds to the Restore Original Colors button in the Recolor Picture dialog box. (On the Format menu, click Picture, and then click Recolor)


The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro shows how to use the RestoreOriginalColors method to restore the original colors of a picture that was recolored by using the ** PictureFormat.Recolor** method. It recolors the first shape in the Shapes collection on the first page of the publication and then restores its original colors.

For this example to work, the recolored shape must be either a picture or an OLE object that represents a picture.

Public Sub RestoreOriginalColors_Example() 

 Dim pubPictureFormat As Publisher.PictureFormat 
 Dim pubShape As Publisher.Shape 
 Dim pubColorFormat As Publisher.ColorFormat 

 Set pubShape = ThisDocument.Pages(1).Shapes(1) 

 Set pubPictureFormat = pubShape.PictureFormat 
 Set pubColorFormat = pubShape.Fill.BackColor 

 pubPictureFormat.Recolor pubColorFormat, msoTrue 
 MsgBox "Picture was recolored." 
 MsgBox "Original colors in picture were restored." 

End Sub
