I am currently using Wscript.echo to output text. Is there a way with this command (or another) to specify the color of the text?
Thank you!

Hi John,

In short... No. VbScript just doesn't have anything in the way of output colour formatting (or output formatting at all other than spaces, tabs and line breaks).

I believe you could use ActiveX to create HTML type output and display that - but it wouldn't be command line based and I'm afraid I have very little idea how to do so.
