hi sunny,

try this >> displayColor -dormant headsUpDisplayLabels (4);

that 4 > change to ur desired number.. this numbers are the index colors available when u change the sliders... or to c what colors are available, go to window > prefs > colors > headupdisplay >> change the label color using the slider.. this is the command which runs finally to change the colors...

hope this helps !
