Re: search highlight color

Hi everyone,

Is there a way to change the viemu search highlight color (yellow by default)?

Thanks,

Re: search highlight color

Hello A.,

Yes indeed. You can go to VS's color configuration environment (Tools|Options|Fonts&Colors), look for 'ViEmu hlsearch', and change it to suit your taste.

Re: search highlight color

While we're on the subject, just a quick newbie question. How can I remove the highlight after I'm done searching?

Thanks,
O.

Re: search highlight color

oshmoz, you can either search for something that does not exist (/xyz<return>), duh, or you can use the :noh comand (full name :noh[lsearch]). This command will turn highlighting off until your next search. You can map it to some key like this (shown mapped to '\'):

  :map \\ :noh<return>

Put it in your home folder's _viemurc or .viemurc to have it read on every session.

Glad to hear that. I'm planning to start a pinned topic at the forum for suggested mappings & tricks.
