[Free] Color Extension

I think you can also rename argbToHex, which would correctly indicate that the first byte is an alpha channel.

It looks like you have used appybuilder code editor. You can't rename java file there so create a new project with file name color.java and copy-paste your code there and recompile it.

I've already tried that multiple Times but IT doesn't work.

Make sure that your java file name and class name is same.

i did that but then i get this error:
