How do you set the color using hex value #6b8ec6 or the RGB

I want to set the DataGrid's header background color to #6b8ec6 but I could not find any method that allows me to do that on the following statements for example:

dg.HeaderStyle.BackColor = Color.SteelBlue;
dg.HeaderStyle.ForeColor = Color.White;
This one comes close but not sure what to pass in.
'Thanks for any help.

You can use the ColorTranslator come with the System.Drawing class
Label1.BackColor = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#F9DA00")

I would do what Colt recommends.

For future reference, Color.FromArbg() is called like:
Hope this helps.

It seem that System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml() only works with named colors ("red","green", ...) but not with hex values.

Is there a way to accept all formats and correctly transform to Color?

ColorTranslator works with hex...

You are most likely inputting it incorrectly.
What is the string you are using? "#FF0000"?

I'm calling and aspx page with a color param. I need this color to be passed on the querystring, so I call the aspx as:

and I get "Input string was not in a correct format". I think here the problem is the # symbol. Is there a problem passing # as a parameter?
If I write
I get

Returning the Color Name from RGB or Hex values?
Hi, Me and a colleague of mine are working on a project that allows our users among other things to select from a drop down a color name (Red, Green, Blue, Magenta, etc etc) which will be used to color code training classes that they are entered for their training class web application. When we store the training class in the database, when it comes to the color value we do not store the name (red, green or blue), but instead the RGB integer value for the color. This works fine, however is there any way to retreive the Color Name from the RGB integer value? For example (let's say I ...

Setting Colors Using System Color Definitions
I want to be able to assign color to an object in a script, based on the way the user has their system colors defined. I know that the function RGB will allow me to specify a color, however I want to set the color of a field during runtime to one of the system colors, for example to "buttonface". When designing a datawindow, one is allowed to use the system colors as choices. I am assuming that this can also be done programmatically. Is there anyone who has done this, and if so how?

Using the value of a DropDown to set a value on a FormView
I have a FormView that I use to modify records.  The user selects which record to view by selecting a value from a DropDown.  The FormView has a datasource which is a SQLDataSource, which in turn uses Stored Procedures to modify the data. I have been able to get this to work with Selecting and Editing the records, but I can't get the Insert part to work properly.  The value that is selected from my DropDown (cboSpringLoads) is called "SpringLoadID" (an integer).  I can manually type this value in my FormView in Insert mode, but obviously, I can't expect...
