Question:
How can I convert a color to its VCL string value?


Answer:
The graphics.pas file has a ColorToString() function that will
convert a valid TColor value to it's string representation using a
predefined constant (if possible) or a hexadecimal string. The
StringToColor() function provides the reciprocal function, taking a
predefined color constant string or hexadecimal string and returning
the TColor value.

Example: 

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Memo1.Lines.Add(ColorToString(clRed));
  Memo1.Lines.Add(IntToStr(StringToColor('clRed')));
end;
