 (Entry last updated on January 27th, 2003)

Emplode version 2.0 and later, when in View/Details mode, lists the tracks and playlists in rows of alternate colors. It looks kind of like an accountant's spreadsheet.

One of the two colors is the default window background color as defined in your current Windows color scheme. The other color is Cyan by default, and can be changed by creating/editing the following registry key:

New STRING value named Alternate Row Colouring (note the English spelling of Colouring).
The value of the string is HTML-tag-style hexadecimal. For example #FFEEFF is 255 red, 238 green, 255 blue.

Note that this may require that you actually create the 2.0/Settings key. The key does not normally exist. Do not confuse this with the emplode/Settings key. Please click here for more details on which registry key should be edited.

Make sure to exit Emplode before editing the registry. After you have edited the registry, you can start Emplode to see the new colors.
