    Hey,
    I'm trying to setup a combobox so a color selected will change the background.
    I know I can name each color and direct it to the color by using -
    Code:
    private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            {
                string strColor = comboBox1.Text;
                Graphics g = this.CreateGraphics();
                switch (strColor)
                {
                    {
                    case "AliceBlue":
                        g.FillEllipse(new SolidBrush(Color.AliceBlue), 0, 0, 320, 220);
                        break;
    
    - and copy and paste changing the "AliceBlue" names for each color.
    but I'm sure there would be a way to borrow that name from the combobox.
    for instant 'in any case put that case as the color'...

    any help would be greatly appreciated.
