A colleague asked me how to use a hexademical color on an object that requires a System.Drawing.Color. It's quite simple and I thought I'd share it.
As an example, you may define a background color using the System.Drawing.Color:
panRow.BackColor = Drawing.Color.Red
But you want a custom color, so you may instead use the ColorTranslator and define the Hex value:
panRow.BackColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#FF5B5B")
This is true of all controls that require a System.Drawing.Color.
May your dreams be in ASP.NET!
