[Solved] Disable vscode statusbar flashes in Vim modes

statusBarColorControl in VIM

It applies to VIM users only. In standalone Vim we can toggle statusbar color based on which VIM mode we are in. In Vscode, it’s the same exact feature. I found it distracting as it keeps changing color.

I made changes to my settings and forgot that I had also enabled this particular setting.

The setting is vim.statusBarColorControl . Open vscode settings.json and then set it to false.

vim.statusBarColorControl: false

it should fix the statusbar flashing caused by changes in mode. You can see it in Gif attached with this post.
