Ticket #35 (closed defect: fixed)
WinHugs: foreground/background colours not from Windows
|Reported by:||neil||Owned by:||neil|
I just started using the new WinHugs? GUI you developed and maintain, and I have a small issue with its appearance. I usually try to tone down all bright colors on the desktop, and hence the default window background color on my machines are not white but some shade of light gray. The issue is then that text portions seem to always have a white background while the rest of the WinHugs? window conforms to the global color setting. I attach a window-shot for illustration. I suggest that it would be much nicer if the global background color setting was honored by the written text portion as well.
Good point! The issue is to do with escape character, you can programatically change the background color of the text by outputting some magic, and this means that by default the background gets "forced" to white, rather than getting its default setting.
I think the solution is to interpret white = the users background colour, black = the users foreground colour, and honour all other colours. I'll hack that up in the next few days and the next release should have this fixed.
