Re: How to convert from OLE_COLOR to COLORREF

I tried passing null as the pallet parameter, and the value I got from the

function was the same I put in. For example, I'm notified that a series got

it's color changed to bright yellow, which has the ole color value of

0x100000B. The corresponding COLORREF value should be somewhere around

0x000FFFF, but OleTranslateColor(...) just gave me back the 0x100000B value.
