A needed resource. Thanks Ben. I might add a save color and vb color code to an RTF type file feature. I like how you added many different codes and the 16 different shades feature.

Very useful. Only one button is missing to copy the color code number to the clipboard. Thanks.

the eyedropper causes the program to crash. GetPixel is always returning -1. Any Idea?
It is a great handy program, I'd like to fix it and use it, if possible.
