<ComboBox x:Name="BorderBrushCmbo" FlowDirection="RightToLeft" ItemsSource="{Binding Colors}" SelectedItem="{Binding Color, Mode=TwoWay}" Width="140" Height="24">

                        <ComboBox.ItemTemplate>

                            <DataTemplate>

                                <Canvas Background="{Binding ., Converter={StaticResource StringToBrushConverter}}" Width="100" Height="18">

                                </Canvas>

                            </DataTemplate>

                        </ComboBox.ItemTemplate>

                    </ComboBox>

to display colors for users

it work very well but i could not read the value of selected color of ComboBox to display it on the symbol fore drawing graphic on the map

my question is how to read the value of selected color from color picker ComboBox

i try to do these:

lineSymbole.Color = new SolidColorBrush((Color)BorderBrushCmbo.SelectedItem);

then i try also these:

Color c = (Color)Convert.ChangeType(BorderBrushCmbo.SelectedItem.ToString(), typeof(Color),null);

lineSymbole.Color = new SolidColorBrush(c);

but I face a problem that i can not convert system color to solid color brush

any help please????

Difficult to answer to this question without knowing how is defined your 'Colors' property which is binded to the ItemsSource.

Very likely it's just a string collection so 'SelectedItem' is a string and you eventually have to convert a string to a Brush.

It's likely what you are already doing in your 'StringToBrushConverter' so the same kind of code should work.

thank you very much

i return back the StringToBrushConverter file

and i try these

string colorString = BorderBrushCmbo1.SelectionBoxItem.ToString();

                    Color c = new Color();

                c.A = 255;

                c.R = byte.Parse(colorString.Substring(0, 2), NumberStyles.HexNumber);

                c.G = byte.Parse(colorString.Substring(2, 2), NumberStyles.HexNumber);

                c.B = byte.Parse(colorString.Substring(4, 2), NumberStyles.HexNumber);

                 

                        lineSymbole.Color = new SolidColorBrush(c);
