Description:

Returns an integer that represents a color obtained by converting standard 6 character hexadecimal input.
If you pass any value to the RGorB param other than "R" or "G" or "B" the function will return the full spectrum decimal value.
The RGorB parameter is a switch modifies the calculation to return only the red, green or blue decimal value of Hex.

Hex = Hexadecimal input. Handles inputs containing leading/trailing spaces and/or # symbol.

RGorB = Switch that determines the spectrum of output ( "R" = red; "G" = green; "B" = Blue; "RGB" or "0" or [not null] = RGB ).
