Colors in ASP.NET

The System.Drawing.Color structure contains a lot of color names, but it’s not immediately apparent what the colors actually look like.

Color Picker

To see a group of colors together, just pick them from the dropdowns. The page will automatically update.

Hex Code: #C0C0C0

Name: Silver,
Hex Code: #C0C0C0

Color Reference

This shows all the available color names in the System.Drawing.Color structure, along with an example of what that color looks like in your browser. (Don’t forget you can still create a color from its RGB value.)

As ever there are complications. What it looks like in your browser is not necessarily the same as it will look in an application, or in a different browser, or on a different operating system, or on a different monitor. Best to regard this as a ‘handy guide’ rather than a definitive comparison chart.
