The following code example demonstrates how to use the Name property. This example is designed to be used with Windows Forms. Paste the code into a form that contains a button named Button2 and associate the Button2_Click method with the button's Click event.

   void Button2_Click( System::Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
      Button2->Width = 100;
      Button2->Text = String::Format( "Color: {0}", Button2->BackColor.Name );
private void Button2_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)

    Button2.Width = 100;
    Button2.Text = "Color: "+Button2.BackColor.Name;
Private Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click

    Button2.Width = 100
    Button2.Text = "Color: " + Button2.BackColor.Name
End Sub


This method returns either the user-defined name of the color, if the color was created from a name, or the name of the known color. For custom colors, the RGB value is returned.
