MapPoint has a fixed palette of 45 colours for user-defined pushpins and drawings (polygons, polylines, etc). Although you can pass it a colour in full 256*256*256 colour space, the closest colour in the palette will be chosen.
This is described in the help, and the colours are included in a bitmap that comes with a standard install.
Has anyone done any work with these colours? Eg. ways to organise them or perhaps produced a color selector dialog box?
I have the hex values of the colours listed out. Next I need to create a dialog box to manipulate them, but I'm trying to find some pattern or way of organising things! Perhaps there's an article for Eric in all of this?
