Nov 16, 2013 The first time i saw colour in c was amazing experience because just black and white stuff is more like old school comparing to modern software and technology. It was hard to find well defined code and definition for colours in c language; took me a while but i got it finally so here is this code in simple language, hope it helps you.

In this 5-10 minute tutorial, we'll customize the Visual Studio color theme by selecting the dark theme. We'll also customize the colors for two different types of text in the text editor.

If you haven't already installed Visual Studio, go to the Visual Studio downloads page to install it for free.

Set the color theme

The default color theme for Visual Studio's user interface is called Blue. Let's change it to Dark.

  1. On the menu bar, which is the row of menus such as File and Edit, choose Tools > Options.

  2. On the Environment > General options page, change the Color theme selection to Dark, and then choose OK.

    The color theme for the entire Visual Studio development environment (IDE) changes to Dark.


You can install additional predefined themes by installing the Visual Studio Color Theme Editor from the Visual Studio Marketplace. After you install this tool, additional color themes appear in the Color theme drop-down list.


You can create your own themes by installing the Visual Studio Color Theme Designer from the Visual Studio Marketplace.

Change text color

Now we'll customize some text colors for the editor. First, let's create a new XML file to see the default colors.

  1. From the menu bar, choose File > New > File.

  2. In the New File dialog box, under the General category, choose XML File, and then choose Open.

  3. Paste the following XML below the line that contains <?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>.

    Notice that the line numbers are a turquoise-blue color, and the XML attributes (such as id='bk101') are a light blue color. We're going to change the text color for these items.

  4. To open the Options dialog box, choose Tools > Options from the menu bar.

  5. Under Environment, choose the Fonts and Colors category.

    Notice that the text under Show settings for says Text Editor—this is what we want. Expand the drop-down list just to see the extensive list of places where you can customize fonts and text color.

  6. To change the color of the line numbers text, in the Display items list, choose Line Number. In the Item foreground box, choose Olive.

    Some languages have their own specific fonts and colors settings. If you are a C++ developer and you want to change the color used for functions, for example, you can look for C++ Functions in the Display items list.

  7. Before we exit out of the dialog box, let's also change the color of XML attributes. In the Display items list, scroll down to XML Attribute and select it. In the Item foreground box, choose Lime. Choose OK to save our selections and close the dialog box.

    The line numbers are now an olive color, and the XML attributes are a bright, lime green. If you open another file type, such as a C++ or C# code file, you'll see that the line numbers also appear in the olive color.

We explored just a couple ways of customizing the colors in Visual Studio. We hope that you'll explore the other customization options in the Options dialog box, to truly make Visual Studio your own.

Hi all! my first post:-)
Well, I use borland compiler now, but if I need to use Dev-cpp to solve this problem, its fine with me.
I use cmd.exe on Windows XP Prof.
My problem is: I want to use the textattr() function of conio.h. I maked a sample for you, but now I see that I cant get any colors too!

#include <stdio.h>
#include <iostream>
#include <conio.h>
//this should be enough I guess
using namespace std;
string a;
int main()
cout << 'This should be underlined?';
cout << endl;
cout << 'Wanna end this program? Press a key (Y) and then press enter.';
cin >> a;

But both, textcolor, and textattr doesnt work. When I do textcolor([LIGHT]GREEN)
so, light and without light, it still doesnt work.
but functions, which can be found in conio.h, like clrscr() which clears the screen and gotoxy(3,3) which sets text on coords 3,3 works fine!!!
I think this is very strange.
I just want to make a 'input'-field, this was a class I wanted to make.
