    Saving text color out to file

    Hello all,

    My question pertains to saving text color out to a names color such as Yello, Black, White, etc.

    Right now when I cast the object to IText I can get the Text color using obj.TextColor.ToString(), but it comes out as a RGB value, is there a way to pass that and get a named color.

    Figured it out. Use FromRGB

    Color color = Color.FromArgb(x, y, z);

      Hello WHICKED,

      Thank you for the post.

      You could use the KnownColors enum to check by RGB if a color is a KnownColor, if so you can get the name of the KnownColor.



      Code:
      Color colorToCheck = Color.Red;
      
      foreach (KnownColor kc in Enum.GetValues(typeof(KnownColor)))
      {
      			
      	Color known = Color.FromKnownColor(kc);
      				
      	if (colorToCheck.ToArgb() == known.ToArgb())
      	{
      		Print(known.Name);
      	}
      }
      I look forward to being of further assistance.
