How to change debug instruction pointer color? [message #71733] Fri, 23 May 2008 06:49 Go to next message

I have installed the latest version of PDT for PHP. Everything works fine
however, I would like to know how to change the color of the highlighting
which occurs while stepping through code in the debugger. Right now the
color for the current line is really light and hard to see on my monitor.
How do you change this setting? I have tried going into:
General->Editors->Text Editors->Annotations as suggested in this page:
http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/news.eclipse.tools.jdt/msg1 3978.html

However, it didn't change the coloring and I'm now at a loss at what
to do. I also looked in the plugins/files to see if there was an
appropriate setting I could change. That also didn't work.

Could anyone tell me how you change the line highlighting color that
occurs while debugging? That is the highlighting color of the currently
executing line?
Thanks.

Well, the Current Line Highlighting is controled in:

General->Editor->Text Editors and then in the Appearance Colors box, you
can select the Current Line, and then change the color to what you want.
I happen to have changed mine to Yellow so that it stands out.

PDT (not PHPEclipse, already you know) editor is based on WST, and WST
does not support Highlighted annotation. So you cannot change the color of
Debug Current Instruction Pointer. (You can choose Squiggles.)

(Also you cannot see any other Highlighted annotations such as Search
Results)
(This bug will be fixed on Eclipse3.4-wst 3.0-pdt 1.1)
