i am using oracle developer suite 10g for windows plateform.
i want to use a specific colour for my canvas which is on my desktop.
i capture the desktop, and open it in mspaint, and pick that color and add it to custom color.
now i am wondor how to select it as a background color for the canvas.
In general canvas support only available color in form Color Palate.
Then easy of of set color can be done in two way.
1. Go layout editor
2. select the canvas
3. From left bottom tool plate select your desire fill color. and done...
1. select the canvas
2. go to it's property plate
3. under color >> set background color
here you can set your custom color by entering value
Hope this works..

set the image of the color u captured in ur form as a back ground
but forms no more than colors it equipped have.
capture the image,
paste in maspaint
choose the pick color
add it to custom color
open the form builder
and choose the color plate,
and that color which he added into the custom color in the mspaint, exists in the forms color plate.
but i dont know how he do this
u let me though now of the link between both windows & forms ...
may be the color pallet is imported from windows and there is a line in windows register some were is added before ur friend did the steps u mentioned it is just a thought not really sure sorry i couldn't help but u can search for windows registry on Google if u interested

i am pretty sure that it was not a registery technique.
it was purely oracle forms technique.
follow the instruction.
Set to Editable
Edit -> Preferences -> change colour mode property to Editable -> Exit form builder
Add Custom Colour
Re-open the form
Open a canvas
From Edit Menu-> Layout Options -> Colour Palette
Select a colour to edit by clicking on an undefined colour i.e. a white square on the bottom far left of the palette
In the current colour dialog it will say something like custom5 change it to a more meaningful name you can call it the rgb value
Then click on rename -> then Edit -> change the rbg value to the colour you want to add-> click OK
Export the custom colour palette
From the canvas -> Edit -> Export -> Colour Palette -> give it a name
Your are done...
