How to Load all Colors in a ComboBox Using C#

This tip loads all colors an ComboBox control. We can use System.Reflection to read all colors of a Color structure and load its properties.

Today, I was working on a Windows application where I need to display listing of all colors in a ComboBox and selection of the color sets the background color of a Form.

In Windows Forms, the Color structure has a public property for each color. We can use System.Reflection to read all colors of a Color structure and load its properties.

On my Form, I have a ColorComboBox control. The following code adds all colors to the ComboBox.
  1. foreach (System.Reflection.PropertyInfo prop in typeof(Color).GetProperties())  
  2. {     
  3.      if (prop.PropertyType.FullName == "System.Drawing.Color")  
  4.              ColorComboBox.Items.Add(prop.Name);  
  5. }
