Custom theme in 4.0.17
Hello,

I want to change the color scheme in my 4coder. I did this in 4.0.14 by calling 'set_theme_colors', but now it seems like this function doesn't do anything. I tried setting the color scheme in the config file, but it seems like variables like 'Stag_Back' are not recognized.

How should I go about modifying the color scheme in 4coder 4.0.17?

Thanks

Fixed! I called set_hook in the wrong order for my setup hook.

Great! If you can remember, what was the mistake you made with the hook thing? Maybe there is something I can do to make it more likely for people to do the setup correctly.

Sure. In 4coder_default_bindings.cpp there is this piece of code

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 #ifndef NO_BINDING extern "C" int32_t get_bindings(void *data, int32_t size){ Bind_Helper context_ = begin_bind_helper(data, size); Bind_Helper *context = &context_; set_all_default_hooks(context); default_keys(context); int32_t result = end_bind_helper(context); return(result); } #endif //NO_BINDING 
.

I added this line of code
 1 set_hook(context, hook_start, my_start); 

on the line right before the call to set_all_default_hooks, so the call to set_all_default_hooks overwrote my start hook (I think). This was fixed by just swapping the order of these two lines.

I then ran into another issue where 4coder started crashing when it called write_and_auto_tab. I fixed this by adding
 1 2 default_4coder_initialize(app); default_4coder_side_by_side_panels(app); 

in my start hook.

Thanks!

I see, thanks for the info, I think I can do something with that.
