Use the Colors menu item to select colors for the Workspace window, Source window, Standard I/O window, Variables and Call Stack window, Watch window, and Array Display window. The Colors menu item does not affect dialog boxes, function panels, or the User Interface Editor.

To change the color of an item, complete the following steps:

  1. Select Options»Colors to open the Environment Color Preferences dialog box. The dialog box contains the purpose of the color and shows its current color state.
  2. In the Environment Color Preferences dialog box, deselect the Use system colors option.
  3. Note  When you enable the Use system colors option, several color types associated with the Workspace window, Source window, and scroll bars disappear from the list box. LabWindows/CVI automatically assigns colors to these types based on the system colors you set in the Appearance tab in the Windows Display Properties dialog box.
  4. Select the item in the list you want to change and select a color from the Color palette. The color change takes effect immediately in all LabWindows/CVI windows that are currently visible.
  5. Click OK to apply your changes. Click Default or Cancel to change all the colors to their default state. All currently visible LabWindows/CVI windows immediately reflect the color changes.

The Environment Color Preferences dialog box also contains eight color types for syntax coloring.
