Hi Guy's !!! Have a Map object to which elements are added automatically by using a class that return a Map Object .One of the contents of the Map Object is : TheMap Key is : FOREGROUND The Map Value is : java.awt.Color[255,255,255] Using the Key "FOREGROUND" ...it value can be obtained using trialmap.get("FOREGROUND"); which returns an object of "Object" type .However,need the object to be converted to an object of class "Color" which furthur needs to be passed on to another method that expects an object of type "Color" . How should this conversion or casting be done ?Pls suggest. Thanks Guy's .
