Hex Number

Am I missing something or what? When I type a decimal number into ColorPic the number I get in the Hex box is NOT the number I calculate. Also if I pick a color and use the Hex number in my application it does not give the correct color. If I use the decimal number it is correct.

Ok, I think I see but I don't know if this is a "feature" or bug.


8388608 Decimal

ColorPic give me 000080 Hex

But if you do the conversion yourself it equals

800000 Hex Some bytes are swapped. Is this suppose to be like this for some reason?

We're probably using a differnet decimal convertion, the hex code is definitly correct. Where exactly are you using the decimal?

BGR vs RGB colors. The first and last bytes need to be swapped... always. Nothing new.

The majority of designers use RGB and not BGR, so that's what we use in ColorPic.
