Customizing IDLE colors
I currently have a custom dark theme of my IDLE (Python Shell). One thing that I can't change atm. is this. When I press tab, there comes up a list of suggested statements. The colors of that popup (text and background) are white background and black text. Is there a way to inverse that?

Thanks for the replies. I forgot to say that I already use the desert theme, which I have customized further. I am very happy with it but if I could just the inverse the colors of the popup menu shown in the picture (which the green arrow points towards), I would be happy.
