All colors in the editor window of SuperEdi are configurable.
By default SuperEdi uses the color scheme that is configured on your Windows system for text, backgound and text selection. But you can override these settings by writing color scheme files. These files reside in the sub directory "Syntax" of the SuperEdi program directory. The file extension is ".col".
Color schemes are assigned to file types using the file type configuration page of the Tools|Options dialog. That means you can have a different color scheme for each file type or you can assign the same scheme to multiple file types. Two color schemes are included in the default installation. The scheme "HTML" is suitable for tag-based languages like HTML, XML, XSLT etc. The scheme "C" is suitable for programming languages such as C, Pascal, Perl or Basic. You can write your own color scheme file and save it as "MyScheme.col" in the "Syntax" directory.
A typical color scheme looks like this:
[Whitespace] BkColor=FFFFFF [NormalText] TextColor=000080 BkColor=FFFFFF
The color scheme file uses the .ini file format. That means it consists of sections and keys. Section names must be unique within a file. Key names must be unique within a section.
Tip: while testing your custom color scheme, press Ctrl+R to apply the changes to the currently open document in SuperEdi.
Each section specifies a certain type of text or an area within the editor window. The following keys are available in all sections:
Note that all keys are optional. You must only specify a new value if you don't want to use the default value, i.e. the Windows color scheme.
