Public Structure ColorableItemInfo


Not all information returned in a ColorableItemInfo structure may be valid because the Visual Studio IDE does not always store unmodified settings from the Font and Color property page in the registry. The bForegroundValid, bBackgroundValid,and bFontFlagsValid are set to non-zero (TRUE) when the corresponding value is valid.

Rather than supplying a literal RGB value, a VSPackage may express the color values in the crForeground and crBackground members in terms of a global palette. As well as simplifying implementation, this allows colors to track certain system-wide and environment-wide values. The interpretation of these color values is controlled by flags from the __VSCOLORTYPE enumeration.
