Hello Voss Grose,
Please take a look at the following online example that demonstrates how to use different color format :
The easiest way is to use the build in:
So you can store in the database strings like "#FF475A1D"
and after that transform then in to color objects in this way:
Color color = ColorPaletteBase.HexStringToColor("#FF475A1D");
I hope that this answers your question.
