Re: [XaraXtreme-dev] Hello Xara!

I have downloaded wxGTK 2.8.4 (I am currently running with and
although they did modify the GetColourFromGTKWidget function slightly
between the two versions, it is still fundamentally the same. That is,
it creates a new widget (by default, and in our case a gtk_button), and
then calls gtk_rc_get_style(widget). If that fails, then it calls

It then returns (by default, and in our case) the background color for a
button in state GTK_STATE_NORMAL.

This results in (with the default GTK theme) a light gray color.

I tested this with the default GTK theme and wxGTK

Are you saying that other versions of wxWidgets did not return a light
gray color for wxSYS_COLOUR_BACKGROUND?

If instead you want white, maybe it should be using
wxSYS_COLOUR_LISTBOX. That returns white on the GTK default theme, and a
complimentary color under my theme.

At any rate, I hope that at least my other modification can be taken. I
have attached it as a diff. This one affects the color of text in a
Gallery on the line with the folder icon. Since Xara explicitly sets the
background color to a light gray, I think it should also explicitly set
the foreground color. In other words, if you want to override the
default theme color for either the background or the foreground, you
should override them both.

I should be able to get you a signed agreement by Tuesday.
