Controls that accept a color specification expect that specification to be a number representing an RGB color value. An RGB color value specifies the relative intensity of red, green, and blue, causing a specific color to be displayed.

This function is used instead of the RGB Function when the corresponding RGB (red, green, blue) values are not remembered. It converts a valid GeneXus color into an RGB value.


ProdDesc.Backcolor = Color('BLU')

ProdDesc is an Edit control and we want its backcolor to be blue.
