In the VC++ and .Net development enviroment under the tools/options/fonts and colors you can choose the color of strings, bookmarks, text etc. There is also a option called User Keyword which will change the color of any text in a file you create called UserType.dat and place in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\IDE.

I never have seen any documentation on this, a fellow engineer showed me a long time ago, it's a great way to get a new programmer up to speed on a project as you can place all the names of your class's, functions etc. and display them as a unique color.

My problem is this .. it still works in .Net 2003 C++ project but not in a C# project.  I've searched through all of Microsofts resources but have had no luck finding anything  any input would be greatly appreciated as this is such a great tool.

Regards
Chris

*Note*
If anyone wants to try this its a great tool, just create a dat file called UserType.dat  only format you need to use is just list whatever text you want to change the color of ex. No delimeters are needed just a new line.
