Question about the Dark Mode's dark scrollbars and toolbars
The Dark Mode in Notepad++ makes both the background and the scrollbars dark, as on the screenshot.
The dark background is applied to the title bars of Notepad++‘es plugins and to some scrollbars in plugins’ windows.
However, it is not applied to some plugins’ toolbars and to a scrollbar of a RichEdit control as can be seen on the another screenshot.
Is there some specific code that needs to be added to plugins to fully support the Dark Mode?
Well, as of v8.4.1, there is the new messages
NPPM_GETDARKMODECOLORS(which will eventually be documented at the usermanual, the next time it’s published)… but I don’t know if that’s sufficient for you to then change the colors of the toolbar yourself. (And, of course, it won’t work before v8.4.1)

Wow, this is an impressive pull request! It definitely shows that the Dark Mode is not so easy to implement!

It has been published:
Since Notepad++ 8.4.4 enhanced Dark Mode, the plugins’ docked dialogs seem to stop receiving the WM_CTLCOLOREDIT message. Is it something expected? If so, what is the alternative way of providing a custom colors for EDIT controls?
