I'm using the package hyperref along with the options :

\hypersetup{
}


Here's the output :

The numbers remain black..

What should I do so the numbers become the same color as defined for the sections ?

I tried to \color{wine-stain}{\tableofcontents} but still that doesn't work since "Contents" is also colorized and the subsection numbers are remaining black.

use also linktocpage –  Herbert Feb 20 at 20:02

This happens because the links are only the titles of entries in the ToC. The page numbers themselves are not hyperlinked. Add the option

linktoc=all


to your set of hyperref options, which should link both the section names as well as the page number.

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{hyperref,xcolor}% http://ctan.org/pkg/{hyperref,xcolor}
\definecolor{wine-stain}{rgb}{0.5,0,0}
\hypersetup{
}
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents

\chapter{First chapter}
\section{First section}
\subsection{First subsection}
\subsubsection{First subsubsection}
\subsubsection{Second subsubsection}
\subsection{Second subsection}
\subsubsection{First subsubsection}
\subsubsection{Second subsubsection}

\section{Second section}
\subsection*{An unnumbered first subsection}
\subsubsection{First subsubsection}
\subsubsection{Second subsubsection}
\subsection*{An unnumbered second subsection}
\subsubsection{First subsubsection}
\subsubsection{Second subsubsection}

\chapter{Second chapter}
\section{First section}
\subsection*{An unnumbered first subsection}
\subsubsection{First subsubsection}
\subsubsection{Second subsubsection}
\subsection*{An unnumbered second subsection}
\subsubsection{First subsubsection}

\section{Second section}

Adding linktocpage is not sufficient, since the sectional units are then not hyperlinked. Unless, of course, this is what you're after in the first place. That is, if used, it provides a mutually exclusive switch between hyperlinking in the ToC. In fact, options related to hyperlinking from the ToC include:

• linktoc=none: No hyperlinking in the ToC;
• linktoc=section: Only the section titles are hyperlinked;
• linktoc=page: Only the page numbers are hyperlinked;
• linktoc=all: Both section titles and page numbers are hyperlinked;
• linktocpage: Similar to linktoc=page

The linktoc key-value is undocumented, but stem from the following code in hyperref.dtx:

\chardef\Hy@linktoc@none=0 %
\else
\fi
\Hy@Warning{%
Unexpected value #1' of\MessageBreak
option linktoc' instead of none',\MessageBreak
section', page' or all'%
}%
}{%
}%
}

merci, can you eventually post a link of what the \l@chapter command is used for ? For I get a bit confused of those two lines of code you wrote though I understand the patchcmd command, thanks. –  Oddant Feb 20 at 21:01
@Oddant: I've updated my post since to use the (undocumented) linktoc=all key-value provided by hyperref; thereby eliminating the requirement/use of etoolbox's \patchcmd. In particular, Which solution are you interested in? The older solution is still available in the revision history. –  Werner Feb 20 at 21:05
really good finding~ no linktoc in the doc as said, you sure are a code-digger.. –  Oddant Feb 20 at 21:11

Here's another option, using the tocloft package and its \cftXpagefont family of commands:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{tocloft}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\colorlet{wine-stain}{orange!80!black}% just for the example

\hypersetup{
}

\renewcommand\cftchappagefont{\color{wine-stain}}
\renewcommand\cftsecpagefont{\color{wine-stain}}
\renewcommand\cftsubsecpagefont{\color{wine-stain}}

\begin{document}

\tableofcontents
\chapter{Test Chapter}
\section{Test Section}
\subsection{Test Subsection}

\end{document}


If the leaders (the filling dots) should alos receive color, you can also redefine the \cftXleader family of commands:

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{tocloft}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\colorlet{wine-stain}{red!80!black}

\hypersetup{
}

\renewcommand\cftchappagefont{\color{wine-stain}}
\renewcommand\cftsecpagefont{\color{wine-stain}}
\renewcommand\cftsubsecpagefont{\color{wine-stain}}

\begin{document}

\tableofcontents
\chapter{Test Chapter}
\section{Test Section}
\subsection{Test Subsection}

\end{document}


Notice that both these approaches just add color.
