6.1 Frames and Faces

There are several faces speedbar generates to provide a consistent color scheme across display types. You can customize these faces using your favorite method. They are:


Face used on expand/contract buttons.


Face used on Files. Should also be used on non-directory like nodes.


Face used for directories, or nodes which consist of groups of other nodes.


Face used for tags in a file, or for leaf items.


Face used to highlight the selected item. This would be the current file being edited.


Face used when the mouse passes over a button.

You can also customize speedbar’s initial frame parameters by changing the alist speedbar-frame-parameters. This variable is used to set up initial details. Height is also automatically added when speedbar is created, though you can override it.
