Windows 7: Theme File "ColorizationColor"

Theme File "ColorizationColor"

When opening a *.theme file , under the heading [VisualStyles] there is an entry called ColorizationColor which has a (10) 8 digit code number. e.g. (0x)A6A35700.

Can someone explain the A6A35700 code to me. I'm trying to equate it (accurately) to a HTML or RGB value for use in Photoshop but so far I'm having no joy.

TIA Fimble

Well I figured out, eventually, that it's a hex value. 0x A6 A3 57 00

The A3 57 00 equates to 163, 87, 00 R,G,B which is as near as a near thing the colour I used.

The A6 equates to 166. Just need to figure out what that is now (maybe transparency?).

This will mean a custon theme can be bang on the money colour wise, instead of messing with the H,S,B colour mixer in Personalize with no readable values (Good move MS!).

Any input still appreciated though!

Sometimes, just sometimes, my brain just disengages. It's Alpha.

I know you posted this a while back, but I wanted you to know that it really helped me solve the same problem. Now my theme loads exactly the color I want it to... no more messing around with the slider bars! Yay! Thanks!!
