Excerpt of article text...

This month I am going to break a promise that I made to myself about this column. We are going to talk about something I authored. Actually, we are going to talk about two different open source items I wrote!

First we are going to look at Xojo Colors Module (https://bitbucket.org/nocturnalcodingmonkeys/xojo-colors-module).

Now the Colors module doesn't help you when picking colors via the IDE. If we look at the following code, we use Colors.Apple.White to make the background of the canvas white.
