Best: You can create your own regex to apply color schema to specific output entries.
Worst: Search term color bug with dark theme of visual studio its really annoying (see Q AND A). Search term on "Find result" window is always blue, which doesn't really works fine with dark background.
If you use the VS 2015 Dark Theme and your output starts showing a white background then go to Tools/Options/Fonts and Colors and for the VSColorOutput items set the background to custom and use RGB 30, 30, 30.
Nice one, Mike, very useful. It's a shame color settings have no effect. Changing regular expressions and patterns list works as expected, but the colors are always default. Can you please have a look at the problem? Thank you!
The color scheme of text background color by VSColorOutput in VS output window is not correct after changing the visual studio theme to dark, and then later back to blue. The background colors of the text keep behaving like it would be the dark VS scheme.
Hi, I'm using VSColorOutput with Dark theme in VS2012. I tried to change the color settings in Fonts and Colors but it does't work, but some color does applied to the Output Window. I just cannot apply my custom settings, even I just want to change the foreground color for Information category. Is that any open I can open to show the diagnosis info to check whether the settings for VSColorOutput are correct?
What's new on the latest version (1.4.8) compared with the version 1.4.6? We use the tool in a somewhat large development environment and we avoid to install new versions unless the benefits are greater than the risks.
Hi, i put my tdd running as post build event.
when i have an error like
2> myCppFile(172): error in "myTest": check service.Children ().size () == 0 failed [1 != 0]
it colors the line as green instead read as expected
thank you in advance for your effort we love your extension
other little suggestion
these line should not be in red
3>PocoFoundationmtd32.lib(Exception.obj) : warning LNK4099: PDB 'pocofoundationmtd.pdb' was not found with 'PocoFoundationmtd32.lib(Exception.obj)' or at 'myfilePath\pocofoundationmtd.pdb'; linking object as if no debug info
3> *** 1 failure detected in test suite "Master Test Suite"
it would also be great to can customize regex and
I love the flexibility of this extension. One feature request though.
Would it be possible to update the Error list when the tool finds matches to the Error, warning and information classifications. In particular when I build with makefile projects I end up with easy to identify msgs, but they don't match the format for VS to identify the file and position information, so it would be nice to be able to specify those as named groups.
Either way this extension is now part of my regular toolset. Thanks for the great work.
Hi, I think the title is self describing but short story long, I cannot find how to uninstall the extension because it does not appear anywhere. However, it works. I have the output colored.
I don't actually need to uninstall and I will actually keep it but need to remove it for a while in order to test something.
Your help is appreciated.
