If you specify a startingColor, the dialog box displays that color by default.
startingColor is a color reference consisting of one of the following:
- a standard color name
- three comma-separated integers between zero and 255, specifying the level of each of red, green, and blue
- an HTML-style color consisting of a hash mark (#) followed by three hexadecimal numbers, one for each of red, green, and blue.
The color is returned in the form of three comma-separated integers between zero and 255, specifying the level of each of red, green, and blue. This format can be used directly to set any color property.
