Amy thanks for the reply. that is some good information but not quite what I was looking for. So, let me rephrase the question. If you are in the code view and see that the data type of a color such as a backgroundColor is a type of color. If you put something invalid the code produces and error. I want to allow the users (developers) to enter a "#FFFFFF" for a color and not have to enter a "0xFFFFFF". Can anyone help with that.
