I am trying to add alpha and RGB values to a DWORD. I have two variables (where the XX are modified only).. BYTE nAlpha; // 0xXX DWORD nRGB; // 0x00XXXXXX I need to add them together, for example, if the alpha was 0x55 and the RGB was 0x00667788, the outcome would be 0x55667788 At the moment I do it this way: nAlpha = 0x55; nRGB = 0x00667788; dwColor = ( ((nAlpha) << 24) | nRGB ) ; But the results are incorrect How is this done properly? Thanks in advance

Um, dont worry, I have it working now.
(Stupid mistake: The RGB was 0xFFFFFF)

I prefer not to use the D3D macros, thanks anyway.
