Setting the color property with a Hex string...

Posted by BlackAx on March 23, 2000 at 06:48:22:

I have a string variable containing a hex value that I want to use to set the color of a control.
blah:= '$00C0CCCC';
Object.Color:= blah;

Since the value for Object's color property is of type TColor, i naturally get an
'icompatible types: TColor and TString' error... Yet if i hardcode it as such:
Object.Color:= $00C0CCCC;
it works just fine... how or WHAT do i change the string to to pass it to the Color property?

Thanks in advance, folks!
