Hello
I want to change the color of the shapes in my code to something more fun but it isn't working. I would like to use web safe colors such as FF3300 or something to that effect. I know I need to do sonmething like .setColor(new Color(0xFF,0x33,ox00)); etc etc but it (the color stays red when I did it to the last current shape. Any suggestions?

Thanks
Rob

Try this:
public void midAction()
{
// This method changes the color of the currently focused shape
// from blue to red, red to green, and green to blue
Color currentColor;
currentColor = currentShape.getColor();
if(currentColor.equals(Color.green) currentShape.setColor(Color.blue);
else if(currentColor.equals(Color.red) currentShape.setColor(Color.green);
else if(currentColor.equals(Color.blue) currentShape.setColor(Color.red);
// Repaint the window to show the change
win.repaint();
}
Cheers

Well, 0xff, 0x33, 0x00 is going to be very similar to Color.red, which is 0xff, 0x00, 0x00; they may look identical to you. Why not try something more significantly different while you're testing? 0xff, 0x33, 0xff is purply pink, for instance.

Right - I will pick the colors later but syntactically I want to get it correct

Here's the problem - any suggestions?

I can't (or don't know how) to change "==Color.blue" to a web safe color for this to work

I think this is what you are looking for???
The values, (0, 51, 255) are integer values representing the rgb values
