This class, CColorComboEx, is a combobox that instead of displaying strings, displays the standard colors much like the one in Developer Studio. It also has support for the "Automatic" color option. To add a color combobox to your project, first add the ColorComboEx.h and ColorComboEx.cpp files into your project. Next, in the resource editor, add a combobox. Make sure that the combobox has the "Drop List" type, the "Fixed" owner draw type, and the "Has Strings" checkbox checked. Now using ClassWizard, add a member variable for the control based on the CColorComboEx class. Just compile and run, and you will have a color combobox.
