I am trying to get the color picked from a combobox into the XBrushes expression so that the user can change the color of the font to the color they wish. think I have sorted out getting the Font name variable into the code, but it does not work for XBrushes.
Due to my little experience of VB I am not sure how to express a variable in the Xbrushes class expression.
The error I get is: 'FColor is not a member of XBrushes'

Can anyone help please?

Just been advised that in PDFSharp Forms, there is a ColorComboBox clas namespace.
I have updated the dll, but can't workout how to use it.
I have found a ColorComboBox.cs file on Wiki but is written in c# and as I new to programming I don't what to do with it.
I have added the PDFSharp.Forms to the form and it understands it as legal namespace, but does not appear to have any properties.
Some info on how I can use this feature would be helpful, with example code.
