Suggestion: Colour change

Reported by Mike | April 20th, 2014 @ 02:48 AM | in 2.1 Release

Hi. I noticed that with the build I have running on my home domain controller, the select item colour is dark blue. I.e. if you select an item in your bid list the background becomes dark blue. Unfortunately, this makes it quite hard to read the text of the entry, especially if the text is in black.

To fix this you could choose another (lighter) colour or simply draw a red box around the highlighted item.

I hope this suggestion helps.

    From the FAQ (http://www.jbidwatcher.com/help/faq#ans14):

    Q. In Windows, it is hard to read the amount of the bid when the item is highlighted/selected with the dark blue back-colour. I don't know if this is just inherited from the Windows colour scheme or if it can be configured somehow.
    A. It's inherited from Windows, but it can be configured... If you go
    into JBidwatcher's Configuration Manager (the two checkbox icon, or
    File | Configure), and go to 'advanced'.

    For the key, type in 'selection.color', and for the value, you type a
    hex representation of the color you want, in RRGGBB format. This
    might not mean anything to you, so here are two colors that might be
    good to start with:

    C6A646 for a slightly brown/tan-ish selection
    999999 for a medium grey selection.

    Some outrageous ones are:
    cc0000 – bright red
    00cc00 – bright green
    0000cc – deep blue (probably even more unreadable)

    You could also use a web 'color picker' like:
    http://www.pagetutor.com/colorpicker/picker2/index.html and take the values out of the background box under the palette.
