Default what controls this color?

In the MIDI Editor, the color for the background of the CC lanes?

in the theme tweaker there is no specific setting for that that I can find.

I would love to be able to change just that color

Hi, hopi

In the Theme development/Tweaker window, the color of the CC lane is attached to the MIDI editor ruler background setting. Still wondering why...

thank you Cubic.... yeah... WTF sense does that make?????

well I guess I 'see' the 'sense' of it but think they should really be separate choices...

What I'm trying to deal with currently regards the new pre-release version of reaper, that uses square points for the velo and cc lanes
and how the colors of those contrast with that background color.
The MIDI color map I have been using for years makes those too dark when the velo and cc lane background color is also dark...[which it is to match the rest of my CIRCUS theme]
so it is becoming a dance between what is the color for the cc lanes along with what is the color of the velocity and cc events.
...and to further complicate it, those event colors change for velo, pitch, channel, etc.
It is not really clear to me what controls each of the colors for cc and velo events with each of those choices.
I know some of them are the MIDI color map, but I don't think they all are... for example, say we have it set to pitch
and draw in some cc events for something... the points are one color and then there is a shading to the right of the point [for me that is a sort of dark purple] but I don't have a clue as what is controlling that shading color.
This becomes maddening..

EDIT:
well... ok for now... I've worked out a compromise by changing the midi note colormap png.... maybe good enuff for today
