How to change the color of varibles in the editor?

Recommended Posts

Hy guys, first of all sorry if it's a simple one, but believe me, I have been searching for this for 4 hours straight now and I'm dying here...

I formatted my hard drive, fresh windows and all so I had to reinstall autoit too. Now I see variables ($xxxx) in a light grey colour and the thing is I remember clearly it was in some other color until now! I have to figure out what color it was and how to change it ... I am so used to that color that now with this new color scheme I constantly keep thinking about it and can't really concentrate on the code...

Sorry if it sounds stupid but I can't help it.

Please help!

If you have the full SciTE4AutoIt3 editor upi can run SciTEConfig (look under the <Tools> menu with an au3 file open) and adjust the colours. ;)

If you are using the SciTE-lite that comes with the AutoIt installer then it is a bit more complicated - and this might not be 100% corect as I have not used that for many years! Open the "au3.properties" file under the <Options> menu, scroll down to the bottom and you will see the #Color Settings section. Copy this section, open the "User Options File" under the same menu and paste the section - you can now change the colours as you wish and they will survive future updates. :)

If you have not upgraded to the full SciTE4AutoIt3 package I would strongly advise that you do so - lots of extra goodies to help in coding Autoit. You can get it here. :D
