0x00008800

what is this called when referencing a color? I want to search so i can visully see a color and then gets it code like 0x00008800 but i don't even know what it is. I want g.setColor(red or #ff0000 but when i do Color.RED it can't find class Color, g is rim graphics. It only compiles if i put setColor(0x00008800)

forgive me if this is basic,

You may want to double check that the color api is properly imported:
Code:
#import net.rim.device.api.ui.Color
also, always double check your spelling: although RIM's in Canada, their api still defines it as "Color" not "Colour" ;)

4.2 api link: RIM Device Java Library: Class Color

thanks for that,

I've been using this ... 0xff0000 for red, but it's good to know what the problem was, I must have been trying to use j2me Color class looking at your post.
