Scroll Prev Top Next More


The Source Code Colours tab lets you choose the colours (and the font) used to display source code.


The default colours are shown below:





The colours are used for highlighting the source code on most of the main tabs, as well as in some of the statistics.



Changing display colours


For each colour you can choose a predefined colour or make your own:


Use the drop-down list colour-combo instructionStep pick one of 16 predefined colours below


Click the colour-dotdotdot-button button instructionStep edit the colour using the standard colour dialog:





seeAlso See the Data Display Settings for changing the colour of the 'visit count' or the 'total time' statistics shown in the source code..



Highlighting data that won't be shown on the next run


You can use settings, such as the Hooked Source Files, to exclude files or directories of source code from being analyzed.


If you've already got performance data being displayed, and you filter out some of that data, it is not removed from statistics in the current session.


However, the data that would be excluded is highlighted using the Selected colour (light grey in the above example).


In the example below, the mainfrm.cpp file has just been added to the Hooked Source Files as an unhooked file, causing rows to be highlighted in the Statistics and Call Tree tabs:







Source Code Text Display


The font used to display the source code can be changed:


Font Size instructionStep pick a font size that suits you

Font Name instructionStep choose your favourite monospaced font


 While all fonts listed should be monospaced (non proportional), webdings and wingdings might not be great choices for code readability.


A small sample of the text in the chosen font name and point size is shown below your selections.


The font selected here doesn't affect the Performance Validator source code editor.
