# change latex glossary page number color

In the glossary chapter, I want to change the page number color from black to blue. How to do that ? Is there an option in the \usepackage{glossaries} entry ?

\usepackage{glossaries}
\renewcommand*{\glstextformat}[1]{\textcolor{blue}{#1}}
\newglossaryentry{IaaS}{name=IaaS,description={Infrastructure as a Service}}

The simplest way is to redefined \glossaryentrynumbers to typeset its argument in your required colour:

\renewcommand{\glossaryentrynumbers}[1]{\textcolor{blue}{#1}}


However, this will also change the colour of the number and range separators. If you don't want that to happen you'll need to redefine them:

\renewcommand{\delimN}{\textcolor{black}{, }}
\renewcommand{\delimR}{\textcolor{black}{--}}


Here's a minimal example:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{glossaries}

\makeglossaries

\newglossaryentry{IaaS}{name=IaaS,description={Infrastructure as a
Service}}

\renewcommand{\glossaryentrynumbers}[1]{\textcolor{blue}{#1}}
\renewcommand{\delimN}{\textcolor{black}{, }}
\renewcommand{\delimR}{\textcolor{black}{--}}

\begin{document}

\gls{IaaS}

\newpage

\gls{IaaS}

\newpage

\printglossaries

\end{document}


The glossary looks like:

Note: This won't work if you are using hyperref as the link colour will override the current text colour.
