Description _ gtzabari 2016-08-13 06:09:40 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201608090002)
Java: 1.8.0_102; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.102-b14
Runtime: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.8.0_102-b14
System: Windows 10 version 10.0 running on amd64; Cp1252; en_CA (nb)
User directory: C:\Users\Gili\AppData\Roaming\NetBeans\dev
Cache directory: C:\Users\Gili\AppData\Local\NetBeans\Cache\dev

I am outputting the following text to the output tab:


The text is supposed to render as follows:
1. [gray foreground, dark green background] [gray foreground, dark red background]
2. [white foreground, dark green background] [white foreground, light red background]

This works properly in the Windows 10 console and in ConEmu, but in Netbeans "[37;1;101m" renders with a green background instead of a light red background.

It looks like these colors are called AixTerm color codes. They are used by most terminals and Windows 10. See and
