      This is in .vimrc:

      if exists("+colorcolumn")
      set colorcolumn=+1 " textwidth+n
      "? set colorcolumn=64,72,80 " specific columns
      hi ColorColumn NONE ctermbg=Cyan
      endif

      This is in .gvimrc:

      hi ColorColumn NONE guibg=Cyan

      :help 'colorcolumn'

      Some options to try:

      :hi! link ColorColumn StatusLine

      :hi! link ColorColumn CursorLine
