GoLand 2017.3 Help

Database Color Settings dialog

From the Database tool window:
Select the element or elements of interest, and select Color Settings from the context menu.


Select the color, and specify how this color should be used (see Shared and Override recursively). Use the checkboxes in the Appearance Settings section to enable or disable the database colors in various places in the UI.

Item Description
Color Click the color that you want to use for the element or elements selected in the Database tool window.

If the color that you want is missing, click Custom and specify the color in the dialog that opens.

The color which is currently selected is marked with its name, e.g. Blue.

DBColorsColor

If you don't want to use any color, click No Color.

Shared Select the checkbox if you want to share the change of color you are about to make with your team. (The database color settings are shared through version control.)

In technical terms, the new color (for the selected element or elements) will be stored in

  • .idea/databaseColors.xml or the .ipr file if the checkbox is selected.
  • .idea/workspace.xml or the .iws file if the checkbox is not selected.

The workspace.xml or the .iws file, normally, is not shared through version control while the rest of GoLand configuration files are.

For more information on GoLand configuration files and their sharing, see .

Override recursively If the checkbox is selected, the selected color will be applied to the element itself and all its subordinate elements recursively.

If the checkbox is not selected, the colors set individually for the subordinate elements won't change.
