Switching color schemes with AutoIt

Recommended Posts



I'm using on WinXP a color scheme based on High contrast - black, where backgrounds are dark and foreground texts are white. Unfortunately, some programs I need to work with don't work with such kind of color schemes, either displaying black text on default (in my case, black) background, or default-color text (in my case, white) on white background, both cases resulting in very "contrast" and "readable" output. I'm visually impaired and white-onblack color scheme greatly saves my eyes.

I'm looking for a way to switch color schemes based on which app is currently focused, and I think AutoIt could help. Is there a way to switch color shceme in Windows by some sort of API/DLL call? Manual scheme switching is quite tedious, especially if needed more often.
