How To - Add Color To Parameter Descriptions

How can I add color to a parameter’s descriptive text. I want to do something like this:

showBTOverview = ParamToggle(EncodeColor(colorRed)+"Show Overview in Interpretation window",EncodeColor(colorGreen)+"No|Yes",defaultval = 0);

If you want to change the color of the text displayed in the Parameters window, I'm afraid, it cannot be done.


But (you probably know that) you can easily change the color and style of the text in the Interpretation window.

An example TJ code from:

printf("<b>Bold text</b>\n");
printf("<i>Italic text</i>\n");
printf("Now " + EncodeColor( colorRed ) + "red text\n");
printf("and finally " + EncodeColor( colorGreen ) + "green <b>AND bold <i>AND italic</i></b>\n");
printf(EncodeColor( colorBlack ) + "going back to black");
