wojtas,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. ;)

The edit control created by GUICtrlCreateEdit can only have a single colour for its text and backgoround. A RichEdit control can have several colours, but for a syntax-based colour scheme you will need a lexer (This is the only AutoIt example that I know about and it uses the Scintilla lexer from SciTE to do the magic). :)

Quite frankly, I would start with an easier project if I were you. :)

Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:

Spoiler

ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area

Well I we Can have a Work Around Then That's Ok...................

Even Though not the Most Efficient way of doing it..............

U can Create Two GUI's

1 having the Edit and The Other Child Transparent Window having a Transparent Label Over it

U can Change The Color of the Label and Make The Second Child GUI move with The Parent Gui

Using WM_NCHITTEST................

I havent yet Tried this ..........

I will give You THe Results When I come Back Home.........

My code:

PredictText: Predict Text of an Edit Control Like Scite. Remote Gmail: Execute your Scripts through Gmail. StringRegExp:Share and learn RegExp.

Run As System: A command line wrapper around PSEXEC.exe to execute your apps scripts as System (LSA). Database: An easier approach for _SQ_LITE beginners.

MathsEx: A UDF for Fractions and LCM, GCF/HCF. FloatingText: An UDF for make your text floating. Clipboard Extendor: A clipboard monitoring tool. 

Custom ScrollBar: Scroll Bar made with GDI+, user can use bitmaps instead. RestrictEdit_SRE: Restrict text in an Edit Control through a Regular Expression.
