How to change URL color in TJvRichEdit?

In TJvRichEdit Version 3.48 (from JVCL) there is an AutoURLDetect property.

The URLs have a dark blue color which makes them difficult to read on a dark background:

So how can I change the URL color to a lighter blue color both at design-time and at run-time?

you can use ordinary TRichEdit with this example ... In WndProc set color similar to this example (when mouse is over - one color and default is another).
Try to set CFE_AUTOCOLOR too...

I use TJvRichEdit also for another reason.

Could you elaborate with some working code on your second "this" link and on the "CFE_AUTOCOLOR" link.

Thanks.

Changing the color of the auto recognized link hasn't been implemented yet .
It seems you have to provide a friendly link name for each link and for that friendly link name, you can set the color

Found conversation with same question here and thik that is a close but with lot of work. I've try it - but no success until now. Think - it is faster to change your RichEdit background color to something else...

edit:
found this component - just to show how should works...
TRichEditWithHyperlinks v.1.0
