    Default Question about Strings and Color type

    Is there a way to convert a string into a color?

    I can't get the code below to work because it is looking for Color type and I'm passing it String. I've tried... Color mainColor = (Color) "color"+x;, but, of course, that doesn't work either.

    Java Code:
    Color color1 = new Color(0, 0, 0), color2 = new Color(100, 100, 100)
    int x = 2;
    Color mainColor = "color"+x;

    No but you can use an array:
    Java Code:
    Color [] colors = new Color[]{new Color(0, 0, 0), new Color(100, 100, 100)};
    int x = 1;
    Color mainColor = colors[x];
