Although WPF provides quite a rich collection of UI controls and components for development, a particular control has been missing. That is a color-picker control. Here a drop down style custom color picker has been made using WPF.

4. You can make color from Hex value.
I have published a new article on this on CodeProject;http://www.codeproject.com/KB/WPF/WPFDropDownColorPicker.aspx
Here color picker project is provided as class library. To use the color picker, add the color picker class library project as reference in your project and write the following XAML code to include the color picker.
