Share your custom syntax highlighting scheme here!

In the IDE you can customize the highlighting scheme used for different language bindings.

The UI for doing this can be found in Options-->Text Editor-->Highlighting and it looks like this:

You can have one custom scheme per language binding. When you first create them they are saved to %appdata%\SoftVelocity\Clarion\10.0\modes or, if you are starting your IDE with the /configdir switch then you should know where to locate that same modes folder!

If you have one you would like to share please reply to this topic and attach it! (or create a GIST or whatever your preferred code sharing method it of course).

Here is my attempt at a dark scheme:

and it looks a little something like this:

Very old school nice one @Dragomir_Tepsic :smiley:

My basic changes are the background color, the intensity of the highlighted line and the color of the parameter names in the XML doc comments. Possibly other I can’t remember now. :smile:
