You could do so by setting the appropriate value to BackColor field in the format definition in the configuration file as shown below.


<format name="PreprocessorKeyword" Font="Courier New, 10pt" BackColor="Orange" FontColor="Gray" />

<format name="HiddenRegionSpecifier" Font="Courier New, 10pt" BackColor="LightSkyBlue" FontColor="Gray" />

<format name="ReadOnlyRegionSpecifier" Font="Courier New, 10pt" BackColor="Yellow" FontColor="Gray" />

<format name="CollapsedText" Font="Courier New, 10pt" FontColor="Black" BackColor="Aqua" BorderColor="Gray" BorderStyle = "Solid"/>

Please refer to the test sample attached that provides more information in this regard.
