#11044 closed Patch (fixed)

Status text is wrong color, unreadable if using a dark theme

When using a dark theme, the standard status messages in the client can be unreadable.

This patch changes the default color of the text in the statusview widget from wxSYS_COLOUR_WINDOWTEXT to wxSYS_COLOUR_LISTBOXTEXT. The background color is wxSYS_COLOUR_LISTBOX, so this made the most sense to me.

I haven't tested the patch with a light theme, or on any other OSes, but I imagine it wouldn't cause any problems. The patch itself is one I wrote back in 2014 for a debian package, but it should still apply fine.

Thanks, applied.

The beauty of old code. When the code to set the foreground color was first written, wxSYS_COLOUR_LISTBOXTEXT had not been invented yet.

On platforms other than wxGTK, wxSYS_COLOUR_LISTBOXTEXT maps to wxSYS_COLOUR_WINDOWTEXT.
