I don't understand. Been using this in FB^3 for long time.

LOCAL mode
  DIM myRGB as rgbColor
LOCAL FN FColor(RED%,GREEN%,BLUE%) 'integers 0-100 for percent of color
  myRGB.blue%=INT(BLUE%*.01 *65535)
  myRGB.green%=INT(GREEN%*.01*65535)
  myRGB.red%=INT(RED%*.01*65535)
  CALL RGBFORECOLOR(#@myRGB)
END FN

Subject: [FB] Trillions of Colors

Hi gang:

Can anyone tell me what's going on with the "new" (new to me that is) 
color values. The old colors were pretty simple, RBG with values that 
ranged from 0-255 (00-FF) -- three bytes making millions of colors 
(i.e., 255 x 255 x 255 = 16+ million).

However, the new colors range (six bytes) of RGB are from 0-65535 
(0000 -- FFFF) and not 0-255  -- what's up with that? Anyone have any 
reference or explanation as to why -- the new color thing is easily 
going beyond human perception.

Thanks.

tedd
