I have been looking at the ColorBox control, but I cannot figure out how to do simple things.  What I want to do is specify the color displayed when the form containing the ColorBox control is opened, and extract the value of the new color chosen by the user.

I expected to be able to specify something like:

radColorBox1.InitialColor = Red;

and then get the new value if there is one. 

Apparently one gets the new value from the ValueChanging or ValueChanged event handlers, which is straightforward enough I guess.

I program in C#.  Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Hello Claude,

Thank you for writing.

You can set RadColorBox value through the Value property for the initial state. For example in the OnLoad event of the form:
private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
  this.radColorBox1.Value = Color.Red;
}
Afterwards, as you have posted, you can track any changes through the ValueChanged/ing events.

I hope this will help. Should you have further questions, do not hesitate to write back.
 
Kind regards,

Hello Art,

Thank you for writing.

RadColorBox accepts Color values. Hence, in order to specify the Value property you should convert the hex code to System.Drawing.Color. You can refer to the following StackOverflow thread that are useful on this topic:  
I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.
