Article #22395: C++ Builder and web safe colors

Queation:

How do I set C++ Builder Forms and Components to Web Safe colors?

Answer:
   The surest and safest way to set web safe colors for Builder
forms and components is by using HTML color codes in the color 
property of the form or component. Also, be aware of three things:

1. Some components do not have a color property that can be
    set through the object inspector. One must use the Windows
    API directly, and doing so is not covered here.

2. Instead of using the standard RGB (Red, Green, Blue) color scheme, 
    you must use BGR. 

3. You must also procede the HTML code with 0x00 (zero-ex-zero-zero).

Examples:
 
   Standard HTML code for red:  FF0000
   C++ Builder color property:  0x00 + 0000FF = 0x000000FF

   Standard HTML code for red:  00FF00
   C++ Builder color property:  0x00 + 00FF00 = 0x0000FF00

   Standard HTML code for red:  0000FF
   C++ Builder color property:  0x00 + FF0000 = 0x00FF0000
