public ColorSavingType ColorSaving { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


A ColorSavingType enumeration value, indicating the type in which the color is stored.

Available values:

Name Description

Stores the color setting in OLE_COLOR format.


Stores the color setting in ARGB format.


Stores the color setting as a system defined color Color.


If the color has ARGB format, that is: 8 bit for Alpha-Transparency, 8 bit Red, 8 bit Green, 8 bit Blue, then you should set the ColorSaving value to ColorSavingType.ArgbColor. The FromArgb method is used to create a Color structure from a 32-bit ARGB value.

The color can be specified in OLE_COLOR format, that is one most significant reserved byte, then, depending on the value of this byte, either byte for Blue, byte for Green, byte for Red (if reserved byte is zero) or the system color index, or an offset into a custom pallette. The ColorSavingType.OleColor value means that for the translation of a supplied OLE color value to a GDI+ System.Drawing.Color structure the FromOle method is used.

Note that the ColorSavingType.Color value stores a color as the .NET Color object, which is not a regular data field type and may require a converter.
