Step 2: Circuit Diagram
The connections are too simple. you just need to connect the RGB led with arduino pins 1,2 and 3 and connect the cathode of the led to GND with a series resistor of 220 ohm.
Step 3: CODE and VB Application
download arduino code and VB application from the link provided below
