    I have searched the forums but cannot seem to find an answer.
    Is it possible to convert the long color values from vb into rgb??

    e.g. txtTestBox.BackColor = 16777215

    I found a solution on google but it was using the Hex keyword and I don't think that is supported yet.

    thanks

    It is supported. See Bitwise library

    You could use the GetRGB method.

    Thanks all, I have also noticed that I don't actually need to convert it either. I can use the same value and it works, although RGB is preferable personally.
