The WebColor ActiveX Control allows you to access the system colors
defined by a user in control panel and convert these into HTML color
codes for nicer looking forms, tables, etc. Also, the facility to
convert HTML color codes to RGB values is provided, which is useful
for setting ActiveX control colors.
Quoted from ACTIVEX.COM DISPATCH, March 24, 1998...
"Customizing the look and feel of Windows is a piece of cake. Want your
app to have pink title bars with beige scroll bars? You got it. What
makes it all so easy is Visual Basic, which automatically queries the
operating system to get information on appearance. But customizing
Windows gets a lot trickier when it comes to Web apps--that is, unless
you have DEVPOWER WEBCOLOR. This control takes the hassle out of
retrieving from Windows the values you've set for the title bars,
windows, menus, and other user-interface elements in your Web
application. As an added bonus, the control can also convert the
hexadecimal color values used by Windows into a format suitable for HTML."

The control was written using Visual Basic 6.0 (Service Pack 3), which requires certain runtime
libraries to be installed. These libraries will be automatically installed
by Internet Explorer or can be installed from the
Runtime Download page.
