    Customizing IDLE colors


    Hi

    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

    idle for python version 3
    click options
    click configure idle
    choose highlighting tab
    Therein are choices for foreground, background by all sorts of different kinds of messages and code.
    [code]Code tags[/code] are essential for python code and Makefiles!

    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.
