I think would help a lot visually in projects with many directories (in particular where the sub-directories have the same name)

example:

├── a
│   ├── aa
│   ├── bb
│   └── cc
├── b
│   ├── aa
│   ├── bb
│   └── cc

giving directory a the background color red would make a, a/aa a/bb a/cc red (a and all its subdirectories)

I am pretty sure that wxWidgets wxTreeCtrl does not support this (the GUI toolkit)
I will check

Thanks, appreciate you're considering (seems to have a virtual get/set), I don't know any editor with this feature, working on project of the kind mentioned above and thought about how much would help a simple visual separation.

This only provide an item background colour. I dont think that this is the effect that we want, I will check this

EDIT:
I tried it, and it least on Windows it actually does the effect that we are looking.
How would you let the user set the colour? right click "Set colour?" or... something automatically?
Maybe colour the top level of folders of each project with random colours?

Here is an example of what it looks like ( you can right click on a folder and select Set custom background colour):

NOTE: I assumed here that you were talking about the C++ workspace.
This can be extended to other workspaces as well

Currently I'm working on a php project (which is the one that made me think about the colors) but I've in mind a couple of C/C++ projects for which I'm sure will be useful
