Hi,

I'm looking for a color navy blue in Awt.

I have seen the colors in AWT.

java.awt.Color;

But I want navy blue.

How would I get it in AWT?


Can anyone please help me?

Thanks

looks like this is what you're looking for.
Color

Just search for this constructor


It allows you to specify the color in RGB.

Thanks for the link, but I don't see any examples for colors in AWT.

Have you even read Campbell's post? It shows you exactly how to get the int value (he even found it for you).

Is there any way to get the value?

For the colors not defined as constants in java.awt.Color check out the link Campbell gave you, or this site.

And beware of getRGB, which does not return RGB. It returns aRGB. If you want RGB alone do a bitwise and on the aRGB with 0x00ffffff.
Note that Color has brighter and darker methods, which might help.
