    If you're using Win API you can use a CHOOSECOLOR struct and the function BOOL ChooseColor(LPCHOOSECOLOR lpcc); to popup a colour selection dialog.

    if you're doing a console application (which I suspect you do since you didn't post in the windows forum) I have no idea how you're solving things (like graphics) so you need to be more specific in your question.

    Eh? I assume you do since you're doing a paint program...

    bgi?
    vga?
    directx?
    opengl?
    allegro?

    I don't know anything about BGI, sorry.
    I suggest you check the borland help files, or move onto at least VGA since, seriously, BGI sucks in my opinion.
