Using RGB/Hex Code to determine Window Color for Win7

Post by Owlbear »

Well the subject says it all would be greatly apreciatet if someone could help me out, I need one exact color and doing with the Color Mixer provided by Windows does not really work since the options are really limited.

Thats the normal way to determine the color of the windows and I want to know if there is anyway to do that with hex code (alphanumerical code for each color) or RGB code (this methode is used by rainmeter)

Take a look at the SysColor plugin, it may do what you want.

I'm sure there is some hack that will allow you to set very specific system colors in Win7 and not have to use that slider dialog, but I don't know what it would be. I don't think you can depend on Registry keys for it. Sorry I can't help, but I haven't used Win7 in a long time.
