Hi I have the following code:

Do you see the part of my code with the XXXXX's? I have the user input the name of a color in the string earlier in the program. How do I use the string in place of the XXXX's? The name of the string is "color", quite appropriately.

Here's one way...

You can't pass [i]color[i/] as an arg to Color.Just use if-else to determine which Color to choose.

Anyone has better method?

To be or not to be. It's a question.
