Description _ tboudreau 2009-05-12 19:25:00 UTC
I'm using an intentionally neutral-color theme;  however, the Kenai window appears bright as blazes (see attached screen

Simple fix:
 - For white, use either UIManager.getColor("text") or UIManager.getColor("white")
 - For black, use either UIManager.getColor("textText") or UIManager.getColor("black")

and it will play much more nicely with all look and feels, unusual desktop themes, etc.

Comment 4 Jan Becicka 2009-05-15 12:21:20 UTC
hm. Now my background on GTKLookAndFeel is grey, while Project window is white. Looks bad.
Comment 5 _ tboudreau 2009-05-15 18:44:14 UTC
See if GTK is returning null for the requested color - its implementation of UIManager keys and values is pretty
screwey;  or if you used "white" try "text".

Ugly grey kenai dashboard. RC1 build
Comment 10 Jan Becicka 2009-05-27 12:55:41 UTC
probably can be fixed by setting background to Tree.textBackground, which is white on GTKLookAndFeel while
Tree.background is grey.
Comment 11 Marian Mirilovic 2009-05-27 13:04:04 UTC
please fix it into NB 6.7
