Hi there, Ive switched over from MSVC++ 6.0 to dev c++ since Ive learned that there were some problems with MSVC and DirectX (which Im about to learn). The thing is, in dev c++ I want to change the background to dark and the text to bright, I did that in the options. But the line where to cursor is is highlighted with about the same brightness as my bright text. :P Makes it quite hard to see what Im coding. Where the option in dev c++ to change in which color the current line is highlighted? Or can you change so its not highlighted at all?

just go to "Tools->Editor Options->Syntax (Tab)".
this has all the options for changing text hilighting in different situations.

Thats what I did. I just cant figure out which of them is the color for the current line of the cursor. Right now its some sort of light-blueish. Doesnt work very well as my syntax highlight is mid-blue to light-blue on a black background. :P

i must say im disappointed with this feature - i was hopin it would let you highlight custom types/functions from certain headers but it makes little to no impact, oh well...

well, if you scroll down the example you can see the 4 types of syntax line hilighting.
the very bottom one (the original navy blue colour) is for plain user selected text so you should just change that one.

Tools->Editor Options->General
almost on the bottom of this dialog is a checkbox named 'highlight current line'
and a dropdown palette when you can change its colour
