I have discovered an anomaly … settting Button.BackColor only works the first time …
private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
button1.BackColor = Color.FromName(“#CCCCCC”);
private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
button1.BackColor = Color.FromName(“#64e764”);
After opening the form, clicking button1 goes gray, clicking button2 then has no affect.

Many thanks Frank. That has fixed it.
Still … some interesting behaviors, the button BackColor assignment worked the first time with Color.FromName(#) but not subsequently, and other controls (Labels, Checkboxes, DataGridViewCells that I have spotted) work OK all the time.
Regardless, I’ve changed all # colors to ColorTranslator.FromHtml now, thanks.
thanks for posting this, but it´s not an anomaly in Wisej.
Color.FromName is only for known names:
If you want to use it for HTML codes you have to use System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.
If I replace your code with
ColorTranslator.FromHtml(….) it works as expected.
Hope that helps.
