Description Vaikesh 2016-01-15 09:07:15 UTC
Sample code :

    using Android.Graphics;
    int _color
    Paint mPaint;
    mPaint.Color = ? // Here I'm confused.

In Java :

    mPaint.setColor( _color );

What will be in Xamarin.Android ?

How to set color in Paint from int ?

Reference I made :

- http://developer.android.com/reference/android/graphics/Paint.html#setColor(int)
- https://developer.xamarin.com/api/property/Android.Graphics.Paint.Color/

There is a Color.FromArgb(Int32) Method under System.Drawing !

But System.Drawing.Color cannot be implicitly converted to Android.Graphics.Color.

> equivalent of Java Android.graphics.Paint setColor(int color) 

Methods which start with `get` and `set` may be mapped to properties:


The Paint.setColor(int) method is bound as the Paint.Color property:


Instead of an `int` value, it instead takes an Android.Graphics.Color structure:

    mPaint.Color = new Android.Graphics.Color (_color);
