iterm2 has the ability to colorize existing connection tabs on the fly. This feature is very handy when you have MANY MANY connections open, like when troubleshooting a complicated production issue. "RED tab DANGER", "GREEN tab safe", etc...
TSX can already colorize tabs, but it is on a per-connection or per-folder basis.
I believe this feature request has value by giving the engineer a quick means to visually "tag" a connection as they work.
I definitely like the idea and we'll see if we can add this in a future minor or major update.
In the meantime, Royal TSX 4.1.1 has been released yesterday and now supports applying color changes instantly to open tabs. So if you have a connection open and go to "Tab - Properties", change the color of the connection and apply the changes, the tab color will change too.
Hope that's suitable workaround until we have implemented on-demand tab colors.
just wanted to let you know that we implemented on-demand color changing for tabs pretty much the same way it works in iTerm2 at the moment.
This will be part of the next minor release.
i am running RoyalTSX 4.1.1, but i could not see options to chang the tab of the color at all. I have been playing around for couple of hours, but no luck. If this featue is already availablea and i couldn't find it, then its definetely not straight forward or intuitive.
i went to 'Tab --> Properties' and also right click the tab and properties, went to colors, but i could not setup tab color at all...
to change the color of an object and its tab color, open the properties of the object, click the square button to the right of the "Display Name" field and choose "Select Color...".
Since 4.1.1 changing the object color this way will also update the tab color of an active session. In the next minor release there will be an additional option to override the tab color on-demand via the "Tab" menu.
Hope that helps!
I already tried that after spending so many hours as its NOT intuitive/straight forward. However, this doesn't change the color of tab as it just underlines with specific color you choose. When you say TAB Color, it must fill the particular color not just underline. if you dont have such feature then be specific what you mean by tab color.
