Purpose:Change the default display colors

 

Format:COLOR [BRIght] fg ON [BRIght] bg

 

fgThe new foreground color
bgThe new background color

 

See also: CLS and Colors and Color Names for details about using colors and the name and numeric codes for colors.

 

Usage:

 

COLOR is normally used in batch files before displaying text. For example, to set screen colors to bright white on blue, you can use this command:

 

color bright white on blue

 

TCC also supports the CMD syntax:

 

COLOR bf

 

In this syntax, b is a hexadecimal digit that specifies the background color and f is a hexadecimal digit that specifies the foreground color.

 

If you do not specify a new foreground and background color, COLOR will revert the display colors to those used when TCC was started (for compatibility with CMD).

 

If you have ANSI enabled and StdColors and/or InputColors set, they will override a COLOR command.
