RGB/Long Colour Chart
The following is a list of the standard windows colours, their RGB numbers and the RGB Value converted to its long value. The RGB function just returns this long value so you can make your programs run a bit faster by using the long value and not having to calculate the long from the RGB values each time the function runs.

PBPaste has a colour calculator window which allows you to mix colours or choose from one of the standard 16 colours and the special colours and the long value be pasted directly into PowerBuilder.
