Dark code::blocks background?
« on: June 09, 2012, 01:47:59 pm »
Google was useless for this question. I can't find normal answer on how to make your code::blocks compiler background darker, for ex: https://sites.google.com/site/svlasovs/home/codeblocks_dark.png. As i understand, there are "theme" codes for this compiler, however, I did not found them. I would be very grateful if you would share some with me :)
Thanks.

Hm, are you talking about the editor?
(most of the time I ignore long posts)

Swap your lexer_cpp.xml with the attached one.

Settings|Editor...|Syntax Highlighting. You will also want to change the caret colour in Margins & Caret.

Hmm. I swaped it, and code blocks did not change at all.

I assume you removed the .txt file extension before swapping, correct?

Try: Settings->Editor...->Syntax highlighting Colour theme: "default"; Syntax highlighting for: "C/C++"; "Reset defaults" (button).

There must be better dark lexers' available:

I think everyone's idea of "better" is different.  There are more user posted lexers, if you would like to try them (search the forums; this is just the most recent of many).
Alternatively, if you know exactly what colors you want, each lexer is completely customizable via the syntax highlighting settings.
