     Color selection in many programs, e.g. Adobe PhotoShop suffers from the inability of the color pipette to function outside the main form of the application. This small program enabeles you to grab color information from any element (pixel) visible on the screen and include the selected color in a color scheme as one of up to ten colors. The update to version 5.0 corrects several items and includes display of editable complementary colors. Details at:

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

Thanks for sharing.
Your program appears to be aimed at web developers (only ?)
Most of us would be more likely to wish to use your program for 'selecting' colors to paste into the Properties window in the VB6 IDE.
Could you have a version for us (showing the color selected value, ready to paste into VB6 Properties window) ?
(If this comment was disrespectful, please report it.)
