Hi Terry,

There might be a way, something like mouseColor for example, but it is easier to convert them: baseConvert(char 2 to 3 of myHex,16,10) & comma & baseConvert(char 4 to 5 of myHex,16,10) & comma & baseConvert(char 6 to 7 of myHex,16,10).

Best regards,

However, if I set the colour using a hex value the queried value for the object remains as a hex value. Is there any way I can force the queried value to report as an RGB triplet, or do I need to programmatically convert them?
