how to color a contour relative to the elevation

I would like the contour line colored to reflect the elevation it is depticting! I have successfully used surface properties - elevations - to create ranges, and to FILL color in between contours, but is there a workflow to color the contours themselves?

 

i also noticed, within the same dialogue box in surface properties, a contour pull down - but it doesnt have near the control to set elevation ranges, nor does actually effect the contour color.

 

any ideas?

 

TIA, OA

Under the Analysis tab of surface properties there is a Contour analysis. Apply a color scheme to the contours.

In the surface style settings you'll need to turn on the color scheme display. Go to the contour tab and under the Contour Range group, set "Use Color Scheme" to True.
