Coloring find results does not work

description

I'm using VSColorOutput 1.4.3. It works great for build output, but it does not for find results. The colors are configured (some gray for the file name and purple for the search term), but the text is all black.

I'm running a German-language version of Visual Studio 2010 SP1, and in FindResultsClassifier.cs, there are several hard-coded English strings (I guess to find out if you're in the find results window), like "Find All", "Match case", "Whole word" and "List filenames only". Since these are in German in my installation, I guess you just don't recognize that you're going through search results. Maybe you can get the localized strings from Visual Studio at runtime?

For me the Find Results coloring always applies the default VSColorOutput colors but never the ones I've set up in Options - Environment - Fonts and Colors - Text Editor - VSColorOutput Find Results *. Tested on Visual Studio 2010 SP1 as well as 2012 RC.

The same behavior is happening on an english version VS2010 sp1

Similarly, my hyperlinks in the find window aren't applying the custom Uri hyperlink style color. In my dark theme, they are both a nearly unreadable Navy Blue on dark grey.

Same issue here with VS2012. Super annoying when using Visual Studio's dark theme.
