Background color of different types of log entries


There appears to be a way to do this but I have been unable to locate anything that helps.
I want to be able to specify the background color of certain types of entries e.g. Errors should be red and warnings yellow, etc.

One of the example log files displayed this type of behavior. Can you point me in the right direction?



Hi Chad,

Thanks for your posting. Yes, you can colorize log entries via Markers. Markers allow you to colorize log entries based on filters. This way you can use your own criteria to highlight specific log entries. To create a Marker, simply edit a view and select the Markers tab.

I hope this helps.



That did the trick. Thank you!
