    MSVC 2003 options

    Is there a way to specify user data types to show a different colour than normal text? For instance I would like for structs classes and typedefs to show up the same colour as keywords int char bool etc...In tools -> option -> fonts and colours I can change several items but don't see one for user defined.

    There's only one possible option for user-defined (look again it's in there somewhere - it's called 'user keyword') but you need to provide a list of user-defined keywords in a text file called 'usertype.dat' which you must create. Save it to the 'Common7\IDE' directory of your msvc2003 installation.

    I'm moving this to the Tech Board since it's a non-programming question.
