I'd like to change the view of my current cursor as this pic: enter image description here

So how to have _ in cursor and how to change color of cursor? Thanks in advanced.

  • Check this out -> https://stackoverflow.com/a/16153774/4838158 And of course, :h guicursor – saikat tapu Dec 4 '17 at 13:46
  • Thanks, follow your suggestions. h guicursor options change shape of cursor follow percent of char. So the expected cursor as pic should be block but how we can have _ in that block and even color it? – Tuyen Pham Dec 4 '17 at 14:11
  • :h highlight seems can't do the trick because I can't find any related Cursor color options that affect unknown defined _. – Tuyen Pham Dec 4 '17 at 14:23

For your cursor in insert mode and command-line insert mode use the following:

set guicursor=i-ci:hor10-Search
  • i-ci : insert and command-line insert
  • hor10: Horizontal bar, 10% of height
  • Search: Yellow, the background color from the "Search" highlight group.
