FoxPro/font colors in Modify Comm


in vfp v9, the default color of commented out lines is a rather light green.  How can I change that to be more visible?

Hi, Peter

You can change the color of any area of text (comments, keywords, literals, etc) on the "Editor" tab in the "Options" dialog, under the tools menu.  Be sure to select "Comments" using the AREA dropdown box.  If the color is too faint, but you like green as the color, you can also change the FONT STYLE to bold with the dropdown below the AREA.

After you've made your changes, be sure to click "Set As Default" or your changes will revert to the previous settings when you exit VFP.

The attached JPG shows the Editor tab of the Options dialog box.

Questions about development only. No installation or hardware specific questions, please. Your first step in requesting assistance should be to identify the version of FoxPro you are using. I can write short functions but, PLEASE do not ask me to write programs for you.


Nearly 30 years professional programming experience using FoxPro (FoxBase through VFP 9) or other xbase language, primarily in Windows environments.

Completed a 1,000 hour diploma course in programming at International Academy of Ohio (subsequently merged with Southern Ohio College).
