Hi and thanks<BR>I have a drop down, which holds the 140 color names from the System.Drawing.Color structure. I typed the whole lot in. How can I get hold of the color name strings directly from the structure, and bind them to the dropdown control?. Can I somehow bind straight to the structure, or do I put the color string values in an array and bind to that. and if so, how do I extract the individual strings from the System.Drawing.Color structure?<BR>thanks<BR>Zeg
