Instead of having fprintf output a line of black text, is there a way to get it to output like a different color text or text with a colored background so its different from the other disp outputs in the command window?

There is currently no support to change the color of the displayed text in the command window.

In MATLAB under the HOME tab, select preferences -> Fonts
This will give you the option you need.

Oh yes, I knew that. I meant if I was running a function for a long time and its displaying a line on the command window every say 5 seconds, I wanted to change some text to display in command window in red rather than black, just so it'll jump out at the user.
