High Contrast Support

Post by zxuiji » Thu Apr 16, 2015 10:43 pm

The Tab titles for Workspace etc are not adapting to the dark high contrast very well, mine is Win7x64 High Contrast #2, the selected tab's come out black on black, every else appears to work fine so far, Codelite version 7.0

You could use the 'Tweaks' plugin to adjust the colours to match your needs, see attached:

Tried but it won't let me enable tweaks, or to be accurate nothing inside the dialogue responds, everything is disabled including the checkbox.

It only works when you have a workspace opened

Okay first off it's pretty dumb that I can't modify the global preferences without a workspace being open, second off why does codelite force bright coloured tabs in a high contrast theme? By all rights unless the user overrides the colours the default should be just to follow the system colours.

Another issue I find is that it SWAPs the colours upon theme change, why can it not just re-request the system colours and let the system tell it what the new colours are?
