Search highlighting that honors syntax coloring

Steve Simmons
Advance apologies if my google-fu has failed and there's already an answer to this somewhere -

I'd like to have search highlighting honor the current state of syntax coloring but inverting foreground and background. Thus if I search for a string and its found in some thing displayed as green on black, the highlighted search is displayed as black on green. If the next instance is found in something displayed as black on yellow, the highlighted search is displayed as yellow on black.

Advance thanks,

Steve

In your colorscheme, find the "hi Search" line and change it to:

  hi Search gui=inverse term=inverse cterm=inverse

Don't specify any guifg, guibg, etc. colors.
