Change Color/Font of "Find Symbol Results" tool Window. RRS feed

  • Question

  • So,

    the question speaks for itself, but please don't mention anything like "Tools | Options | Fonts And Colors" because that is wrong.  There is no color setting in that dialog that affects the colors of the Find Symbol Results tool window.  I have tried many different combinations on all the available color options and never does the color spectrum change for this window.

    My problem is that the background color (highlight) color of all the tokens is a very pale blue on a white background and is extremely hard to see, so i want to set it to a deeper gray color.  thus the tokenized highlight as well as the inactive selection text would be visible all the time.  currently I have to squint really hard and this slows me down.

    thanks

    Had the same sort of problem a few months ago. Worked it out in the end. The colours are controlled by your windows base colours and not VS. Now I'm still using XP so it was a bit of a pain to sort out. I ended up switching back to Windows Classic style, Advanced, and setting the 'Selected Items' colour to something I could see better. A pain but got use to it now.

    Only worked it out when I came across the same problem in Office 2007.

  • Hi JaedenRuiner,

    Based on my knowledge, The VS cannot perform this.
