Lazarus IDE editor tabs bar: how to change background color?
« on: August 16, 2019, 11:03:46 am »
I want to tweak a little IDE itself, source editor tabs bar.  The active tab label does not stay out, and it's difficult to note, which tab is now active.  If I could change its background color, say, to yellow, it would be great. :)
Can anybody tell me, in what Lazarus IDE source file I can make such a change?  Thanks in advance. :)

If you are on Windows you cannot change the color as it uses a Windows control.

Source file: ide/SourceEditor.pp
laz trunk - fpc trunk 32bit - Windows 10 Pro x64 (1803)
