Hello Stephen,

Console colours, background and text, can be set with: options>set console-colours

My intension is to do this in my application:

blue text for notify

red text for remarks

Please can you give me an example to do so.

I studied the section with "settextcolors", but a little bit hard for me to succeed in it.

with regards,

Hugo Overbeek
