Is it possible to change the color of the text in the Console?

Title pretty much says it all. I'm wanting to change the color of certain text that's being written out with ConsoleWrite()

Thanks!

[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]

Thanks very much!

For those looking for an answer,

ConsoleWrite("! somethjing red" & @CR)
ConsoleWrite("> something bluue" & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("- something orange" & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite("+ something green" & @CRLF)

I'm glad you found an answer.

I don't mean to hijack this thread, but that solution only applies to how SciTE displays the console output.

I was looking for a method that works with cmd.exe, and found it here.

Many thanks to The Kandie Man, ResNullius, and everyone else who contributed.
