Not retaining colors

Hi,
I am trying to code this volume counter to retain its colors but I seem to fail to achieve this. Not much of a programmer, but with the little knowledge I have thought serializing the colors in the property section would keep the colors. Any help appreciated.

Here's a snippet from my code that does save the colours....

 
Code
        [XmlIgnore()]
        [Description("At Ask For Color")]
        [GridCategory("Appearance")]
        public Color AtAskColor {
            get { return foreColor[(int)PriceType.AT_ASK]; }
            set { foreColor[(int)PriceType.AT_ASK] = value; }
        }
        
        [Browsable(false)]
        public string AtAskColorSerialize {
            get { return NinjaTrader.Gui.Design.SerializableColor.ToString(foreColor[(int)PriceType.AT_ASK]); }
            set { foreColor[(int)PriceType.AT_ASK] = NinjaTrader.Gui.Design.SerializableColor.FromString(value); }
        }
Hope it helps.

Pete

Pete,
Tried out your snippet but getting all sorts of errors, not to mention your code seems sophisticated for my basic level!
Errors include "cannot convert Syste.Drawing.Color to 'int' for the bit "return foreColor[(int)..."

Will work on it, any more (simpler clues would be appreciated.

Solved!

FWIW, applied the color code change within the DrawText and now works.
