I want to change the color of the semantic highlight function, which highlights every occurrence of the selected word or function. Semantic Highlight was first implemented in LabWindows/CVI 2017. 

In the picture below you can see the default semantic highlight color purple which highlights the selected function GetCtrlVal on every occurrence.

This article will go through the steps on changing the color of the semantic highlight function.

  1. Choose Options  
  2. Colors... 

 
  1. In Environment Color Preferences click on Semantic Highlight
  2. Choose the new Color
  3. Click on OK button

This will lead to the result shown on the picture below.
