Description User image justin hugh daly 2000-08-10 12:10:19 PDT
build from 8/10
classic theme

to reproduce:

   o  change windows 'appearance' in the display control panel (plum is my fav)


   o  white backgroup area around a grey text area in the url entry box

it also looks like the scroll bar's not honoring the system color?

woops i dupped the bugs wrong, the comment listed in 48010: 

In the Windows Classic skin, in box.css, the color for .box-toolbar-group should
be "window" rather than "white":

    background-color      : window;
    -moz-border-radius    : 5px;
    padding               : 3px 2px 2px 3px;
    margin                : 0px 10px 0px 5px;

should fix this bug. also css code should be added to make the textcolor be the 
system's textcolor, because otherwise someone with a black window background 
won't be able to see the text

This is partialy fixed, now changing the color changes most of the URL entry
box, but not all of it. Changing the font color does not do anything, but it
does change the color of the text on the menubar! Should this bug change into
"Any colors in classic skin that aren't correct"?

Adding classic keyword
Comment 5 User image Blake Ross 2000-09-06 18:51:09 PDT
specific to classic, -> themes
Comment 6 User image Michael Ward 2000-09-06 19:47:19 PDT
I will try to list all the parts of classic which don't conform to the standard
windows interface. First, the url box is mostly correct, but it has a white
border that looks odd when a different color scheme is applyed. Next, the menu
headings in the menu bar and the bookmarks button on the personal toolbar use
the color windows calls "window text" in the display control panel. Also, the
status indicator uses this color while it should use a color that the user has
chosen to go over the window. That looks like all there is, doesn't seem to hard
to fix, keep up the good work Ben!

Fixed in windows (2000-09-11-08-M18).
Comment 9 User image justin hugh daly 2000-09-12 06:50:57 PDT
are you sure? i still see the white background around a grey text entry box in
the same build (200091108).

Hi Justin,

Sorry that I mistake. Yes, the white backgroup area around a light yellow text 
area in the url entry box.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Launch the netscape 6 with the new build (2000-09-12-08-M18).
2. Go the Preferences, select Themes.
3. Select Classic under Themes.
4. Go to windows by selecting the control panel under the settings menu.
5. Open "Display"
6. Click the "Appearance"
7. Select "Plum (High Color)"under "Scheme"
8. Notice that the white backgroup area around a light yellow text area in the 
   url entry box. This only happens in Classic.

Something related to be careful of while fixing this:  <EM>never</EM> leave the
text color as a default, while forcing the background color, or vice versa.

Some people (e.g. me) have desktop themes with things like black windows and
white text.  When the URL bar background is forced to white, but the system text
color (white) is used, it does not look so good.

Bug 57426 may be related to this... I'm not sure.
