    Is anyone aware of VS 2010 text editor settings with a dark background and works well with JustCode? Anyone on the Telerik staff using a dark background in VS and using JustCode willing to share?

    Hello Jim,

    I use JustCode with dark background with the default colors. I am using it with this theme: http://studiostyles.info/schemes/desertex-revised . On this site you can find more themes to play with:
    http://studiostyles.info/

    Alternatively, you can play a bit with the JustCode color identifiers and tweak them for your favorite theme.
    Here is more info on the topic:

    http://blogs.telerik.com/joshuaholt/posts/10-04-28/justcode_ndash_color_identifiers_in_depth.aspx

    In the end of the second blog there is a sample JustCode Visual Studio theme. You can try it out.
    I hope this will help you pick the best theme. Feel free to share it with us :)

    Thanks. I've installed the desertex theme and like it so far. I needed to darken the "current line" and "highlighted reference" background colors, but otherwise it looks great.
