Title: Dark theme doesn't affect menus
Post by: pmsteinm on August 13, 2019, 08:02:21 pm
In the beta the dark them is not applied to the menu bar or any mouse menus. In v23 it was.  I'm running on Windows 10 1903.

To clarify, you are talking about Windows 10 dark theme (app mode), not SlickEdit's built-in dark theme ?

So it actually is working now using Slickedit but the option to use the Windows theme does not. I changed my config from "Dark" to "System". When I did that I didn't get any dark anywhere. I quit and restart and it was still no dark. I then selected "dark" in the vs config and now everything is working. So something wonky with upgrading from the v23 config I guess.

Windows 10 dark app mode did not work in v23 either.  Qt has not yet added support for that (even in Qt5).  You were probably using SlickEdit's dark mode then also.

Yes, I was. So basically disabling and re-enabling it fixed the problem.

At some point today I noticed that once again menu items were no longer dark. I assume it happened when I restarted this morning. It's not obvious because only the right click and top menus are white in this case. The toolbar backgrounds all stay dark. I fixed this by toggling the dark option to system and back to dark. So something wonky is going on here compared to Slickedit 23.
