What you are looking for are Line Markers

//  First define the marker. Usually they have some kind 
//  of symbol to show in the margin but we can set it to 
//  only change the background color of the line
Marker marker = scintilla.Markers[0];
marker.Symbol = MarkerSymbol.Background;
marker.BackColor = Color.Green;
//  Add 3 lines
scintilla.Text = "This is \r\n a test.\r\nThis is only a test";

//  Go ahead and add the marker to all 3 lines. This sets a 
//  background color that overrides the styles'

//  And to clear the background color unset the marker

In this example lines 0 and 2 will have a green background

How can I change the forecolor instead of background? I tried to make

marker.ForeColor = Color.Green;

but didn't worked!

Can you help me?

Maybe you have to set the UseForeColor property of the Scintilla control to true.
