How can i get only differences using SQL Toolkit similar to SQLCompare report which displays differences in RED color?

I want to get only actual differences between objects scriptwise

    You can use the work object to script each database object in your databases and then use the DiffHelper class to generate a line-by-line comparison. Here is an example:
    using System;
    using RedGate.SQLCompare.Engine;
    using RedGate.SQL.Shared;
    namespace DiffHelperExample
    	/// <summary>
    	/// Summary description for Class1.
    	/// </summary>
    	class Class1
    		/// <summary>
    		/// The main entry point for the application.
    		/// </summary>
    		static void Main(string[] args)
    			Database db1=new Database();
    			Database db2=new Database();
    			db1.Register(new ConnectionProperties(".", "WidgetStaging"), Options.Default);
    			db2.Register(new ConnectionProperties(".", "WidgetProduction"), Options.Default);
    			Differences differences=db1.CompareWith(db2, Options.Default);
    			DiffHelper.ComparisonStrings s=null;
    			Work w = new Work();
    			foreach (Difference difference in differences)
    					s=DiffHelper.CompareStrings(w.ScriptObject(difference.ObjectIn1,Options.Default).ToString(), w.ScriptObject(difference.ObjectIn2,Options.Default).ToString(), true, false);
    								Console.WriteLine("Comparison of object {0}\r\n---------------------", difference.Name);
    				if (difference.ObjectIn1!=null && difference.ObjectIn2!=null) 
    					foreach (DiffHelper.ComparisonString str in s) 
    if (str.LeftStringPresent && str.RightStringPresent && !str.Different) Console.WriteLine(str.LeftString + "\t== " +str.RightString);			
    if (str.LeftStringPresent && str.RightStringPresent &str.Different) Console.WriteLine(str.LeftString + "\t<> " +str.RightString);
    						if (str.LeftStringPresent && !str.RightStringPresent) Console.WriteLine(str.LeftString +"\t-> ");
    						if (!str.LeftStringPresent && str.RightStringPresent) Console.WriteLine("\t<- " +str.RightString);
    					if (difference.ObjectIn1==null) Console.WriteLine("<- (This object exists only in DB2)");
    					if (difference.ObjectIn2==null) Console.WriteLine("(This object exists only in DB1) ->");
    			Console.WriteLine("Press any key!");
