Colored(rainbow) Strings in edit

7 posts in this topic

I am looking for a way to make an edit control with a black background and have the text alternate on color. I would like each line of text to be a different color. I can see how it would be possible to use guictrlsetcolor(), however this will change the color of all lines within the edit box. Any ideas?

Congratulations on solving your own issue.

As you probably found your answer by searching the forum...

As a courtesy for others, do you mind providing what it is that you did to come to your solution so that others like yourself that are looking for your specific topic/idea for help, don't have to post asking you for it later on :) ?
