New "Expressions on..." Window
Jun 4th, 2019 at 5:17pm
 
I do like the look of the new "Expressions" window, but the text colors are defaulting to the color I've set for comments (VS2017 Community) - and the green on black background is nearly imposible to read.  Is there any settings that will override the VS text colors so I can set VM's colors?

Hi,

The green is the one color we had to pick and tried to pick a color that shows on all theme variations. In the next release we will try to add facility for you to change that color.

Thanks for the report.

Ok!  On my working windows in VS, the black background and green comment text seems to be good.  But on the Expressions window it gets lost... seems to be dimmer than the text in the comments.  Will be keeping an eye out (!) for any changes.  Smiley

We wanted to set green and bold but that causes too much flicker because it resizes the text. We will look at something. Unfortunately changing the background color is difficult with themes and also causies a strobe effect with fast trace points

we want to use the font that is set for vs too!

In the releases section of this forum is 1906.16.1 which uses the output window hyperlink color setting for the changed watch expressions values. That should show as blue and also all the values are now bold and a bit larger. See how that looks. Thanks
