Displaying the Color Groups

We can control the display of the color groups using ColorGroups property.

this.colorUIControl1.ColorGroups = ((Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ColorUIGroups)((Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ColorUIGroups.CustomColors | Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ColorUIGroups.StandardColors)));
Me.colorUIControl1.ColorGroups = DirectCast(((Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ColorUIGroups.CustomColors Or Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ColorUIGroups.StandardColors)), Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ColorUIGroups)

User Groups

ColorGroups property also let you add user groups in addition to the standard groups. The color palette for the UserGroups will be CustomColors, by default.

this.colorUIControl1.ColorGroups = ((Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ColorUIGroups)(((Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ColorUIGroups.CustomColors | Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ColorUIGroups.StandardColors)| Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ColorUIGroups.UserColors)));
Me.colorUIControl1.ColorGroups = DirectCast((((Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ColorUIGroups.CustomColors Or  Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ColorUIGroups.StandardColors) Or Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ColorUIGroups.UserColors)),  Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.ColorUIGroups)
