# Modify Example environment

\begin{example}
Is there a way to modify the color of the word "Example 1" and also being able to tpye
on the same line with the word Example 1?
\end{example}


• Surely, but it depends on how you defined the example environment. – Bernard Sep 7 '16 at 23:45

Changing the foreground <colour> for the example environment is achieved using

\setbeamercolor{block title example}{fg=<colour>}


For using an "inline example", you can define your own environment, say inlineexample:

\documentclass{beamer}

\let\Tiny\tiny% http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/94159/5764
\setbeamertemplate{theorems}[numbered]

\newenvironment{inlineexample}
{\par\vskip\medskipamount
\refstepcounter{theorem}%
{\usebeamercolor[fg]{block title example}\translate{Example}~\theexample}:}
{\par\vskip\smallskipamount}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{Frame title}

\begin{example}
Is there a way to modify the color of the word Example~\theexample'' and
also being able to type on the same line with the word Example~\theexample?
\end{example}

\setbeamercolor{block title example}{fg=red}
\begin{example}
Is there a way to modify the color of the word Example~\theexample'' and
also being able to type on the same line with the word Example~\theexample?
\end{example}

\begin{inlineexample}
Is there a way to modify the color of the word Example~\theexample'' and
also being able to type on the same line with the word Example~\theexample?
\end{inlineexample}

\end{frame}

\end{document}
