Web safe

Is it always in 'web safe' color mode ?
Or is there a setting somewhere to make it only show 'web safe' colors ?
Thanks,
Rob

You can convert your color to be Web safe by clicking the 'Web Snap' button.
Please see tip 7 here:

Web safe

Thanks for reply.
I am changing the colors in my VB6 program, as the user sometimes uses a Terminal Server (via Remote Desktop).
When he does some of my Forms are hard to read.
The pc that acts as the host only allows 256 colors.
I assumed that if I used web safe colors, that I would be ok.
From my recent attempts, ir appears that 'web safe' and 'Windows 256 color display' are not the same.
Is that your understanding too ?
Thanks,
Rob

Rob,

Actually the 256 Colors are different from Web-safe colors. If you compare this article on 8-bit colors (which is 256 colors):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/8-bit_color

with this article on web safe colors:
http://en.wikipedia.org/w...afe_colors

You'll see that there is a distinct difference. There are only 216 web safe colors and that only 22 of them reliably display with non-dithering on all 256 color displays.

However this said you should certainly start out using the web safe colors and see how they display.
