The color slider

The color slider is a successful experiement in Excel 2003. Also, it works great in higher versions of Excel.

So, all you have to do is, move the sliders from left or right. After that, the color of the cell changes. Individually, each slider represents a RGB value. One for red, another for green, and a third for blue.

As always, you are free to take it to another level. In fact, we may do the same in the future. Hey, that could be a challenge.

Public Sub Slider_Color()
    Dim rComp As Integer
    Dim gComp As Integer
    Dim bComp As Integer
    rComp = Right("000" & Range("refRed").Value, 3)
    gComp = Right("000" & Range("refGreen").Value, 3)
    bComp = Right("000" & Range("refBlue").Value, 3)
    Range("refColor").Interior.Color = RGB(rComp, gComp, bComp)
End Sub
