     Single class module, plug & play. Maybe the last color selector you will ever use? Lots of options & will list most of them here: 1) 3 palettes to choose from, 2) palette tabs can be disabled, 3) grab color from anywhere on screen, 4) fail-safe mode will display std color dialog if routines fail, 5) mouse wheel support, 6) prevent non-palette selections, 7) auto-convert negative sys colors to positive values, 8)add custom colors & personal colors to the default palette or replace completely, 9) easy window placement, 10) even more options. Heavily documented, jump to end of the module for a detailed description of options & their settings. 22Feb06 - Converted to a stand-alone, single class. 26Feb06: Keybd navigation. Now movable. 30Mar06: Reworked to make Win9x-safe & make more MDI-friendly. 31Mar06: Changed memory APIs used to help prevent XP DEP warnings & addressed the error messages being reported that are not errors rather a result of VB IDE settings. 4 Apr. Prev repost broke ability to select listbox items; fixed. 10 Nov 06: listboxes didn't scroll down w/mousewheel, played with XP Manifests to replicate reported issues w/some luck. 11Nov06: running out of bugs... patch minor keybd navigation issues, add layered window support, patch MDI parent losing active titlebar when common color dialog closes. See change history in module if interested.
