Highlighting action in activity list [Alt+Enter] vs2102

Hi, I am very frustrated - I cannot see which item is actually highlighted when I press Alt+Enter and use arrow keys. The difference in highlight is next to invisible. I am using Light theme in VS2012, but now had to switch to Dark since only then I can tell for sure which action I pick.

Where is the color for action list highlight is configured? I would like to have the same blue as picking from intellisense suggestion list.

Please help.

I had the same problem.

I cannot distinguish between selected menu item and unselected menu item in both VS2012 & R# 7.01 in Light theme (Dark is too dark for me )

I found a solution to change text & background color of VS2012 by using this tool:  http://bchavez.bitarmory.com/archive/2012/08/27/modify-visual-studio-2012-dark-and-light-themes.aspx (change field  CommandBarmenuItemMouseOver of Light theme in category Environment)

 

But I cannot change selected item of R# (when find usage, go to file/type, ...)

Where can I change them as I do with VS2012?

maybe this codeproject article will help:

 

http://www.codeproject.com/Tips/444787/Midnight-A-VS2012-Middle-Theme

 

The author created an own theme which is near the VS2010 color.

[Edited] just seen that the author seemed to use the tool mentioned by tu nguyen as there is a link to the same article on the web site.

I try the theme posted by Klaus Luedenscheidt. It works. But it doesn't affect R#'s colors.

I see that R# change its theme when we change VS theme from Light to Dark, so I guess we can change R#'s colors setting in some where.

Re: Highlighting action in activity list [Alt+Enter] vs2102

R# colors you changed in the VS options are stored in the following Registry hive:

 

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\FontAndColors\{75A05685-00A8-4DED-BAE5-E7A50BFA929A}]

 

There are also theme related entriesin the hive [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0_Config\Themes\...\Resharper}] (where "..." means the guid for each theme). As Brian Chavez provides a link to the source of his tool you may download and modify it to take a look at the color values in there.

 

Regards

Klaus
