#1135 closed Bug report

Color choice makes it hard to see status

Reported by: comperio Owned by: Alexander Schuch
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: comperio, Alexander Schuch
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


In the progress bars that appear when
uploading/downloading, it appears that the windows
"highlight" color is used for the bar itself.

The percent (as text) seems to be using the windows
foreground color. When the highlight passes over the
text, the text seems to to white.

The problem with this is that if the user uses a light
color for the highlight, it becomes difficult (if not
impossible) to see the text.

Ideally, if the highlight color is used for the bar,
then the Windows foreground color should be used as the
text. (The idea here is the user will have already
picked colors that have good contrast.)

The rule here should be that if using a color from the
windows scheme for one part of a control, then windows
colors should be used consistantly throughout the rest
of the control.

This bug most likely won't be fixed in FileZilla 2 anymore,
but as it works in FileZilla 3, the new major version of
FileZilla, I am closing this report.
