Storing Colours in Database

.NET allows you to build colours from their ARGB values, so it is possible to use this value to save and retrieve a colour to/from a database as an integer. The code snippet below uses the ToARGB and FromARGB methods to demonstrate this.

int myInt = colorDialog1.Color.ToArgb();
Color myColor = Color.FromArgb(myInt);
pictureBox1.Backcolor = myColor;
