Color of count matches in Find on MS Windows: hard-coded blue?



  • Hi,

    N++'s Find dialog features a Count button. If you press it, N++ will count the number of occurrences for the text input into the “Find what” box, and display the result in the dialog’s status bar*.

    If the Count finds any matches, it will notify something like:
    Count: 74 matches.

    It displays that in a rather dark blue color, RGB(0, 0, 255), regardless of my color settings in my operating system.

    Unfortunately it is displayed against a window background that does regard my color settings in my operating system.

    Guess what happens if I choose Microsoft’s built-in High Contrast Black color theme?

    Right: dark blue on black equals nigh invisible.

    I have looked up and down Windows and up and down N++ to find a way to change that color. I have not been successful.

    If you know of a way to adjust that color, please let me know?

    Thank you,
    André

    *) It looks like a status bar. It might not be one, technically.

    I think you may be right about this. When I took a look at doing some automation on its text via AutoIt3 some time ago, it resisted my attempts at reading its text, and did not look like a real status bar.
