I believe what you want is not the printing stuff but something like the following (if the code were in scintillamodule.cxx): int backcolor = (( back_b & 0xff ) << 16 ) | ((back_g & 0xff) << 8 ) | (back_r & 0xff); scintilla_send_message(get_sci(editor), SCI_STYLESETBACK, SCI_STYLEDEFAULT, backcolor); Wing doesn't have any way to alter the colors use for hilighting or background in the editor right now, but we'ld certainly accept a patch to do that (and will eventually do it ourselves anyway). Unfortunately it's not totally straight forward to do this, because changing the background will in most cases also requires changing the foreground colors to match reasonably. To do that right, a whole table of color choices is needed, one for each supported document type + lexer state, plus the color used for current debug line and hilight. - Stephan
