Register font color

Brian Openshaw
Hi,

Sorry if this is a repeat. I have googled searched the archives and
couldn't find an answer.

I have used the theme changing tool to change my themes and have chosen
the MS-Windows Theme.

I would like to know how to change the register font color?

It seems to always just be black.

I have modified my settings to have a black background in the register.
So my register is now black on black.
So now I need to change the register font color to a white or yellow
font color instead of black.

If this is a setting in the prefences somewhere that I missed, please
let me know.

If I need to hard code this into the theme files, that is great too.
Just tell me the coding sytax and where to put it.

Please forgive me, I am legally blind and can't see very well.
I can only read bright text on a black background.

Thank you so much for the help.

Brian

Re: Register font color

Geert Janssens
Hi Brian,

A somewhat late reply to your request. It is a long standing bug [1] that the font colors in the
register are hard-coded. I'm happy to inform you I committed a fix for this last week. It will
first appear in gnucash 2.6.4 due by the end of the month.

The register will now use the theme colors for font and background. You can explicitly set the
colors as well. There are 4 widgets that are used to determine the colors:
header_color
primary_color
secondary_color
split_color

For each of these widgets you could set the relevant foreground and background colors using
.gtkrc. I have no experience with this myself though so you may have to search a bit to learn
how this is done.

Regards,

Geert
