GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 499727
Combobox does not use correct text color in combobox and popup menu
Last modified: 2007-11-27 15:46:39 UTC
Please describe the problem:
When using black/white as bg/fg and white/black as base/text colors, the combobox is the only widget that uses the text color (black) to display the text on the button and the menu entries. A screenshot is attached.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to Setting->Appearance->Customize Theme->Colors
2. Set a dark window background and white foreground
3. Leave white background and black text for input lines
4. Look and click on a combobox of your choice
dark text on dark background
bright text on dark background
Does this happen every time?
I would be thankful for any pointers how the colors in the combobox are determined so I could prepare a patch. I'm a bit hesitant to change anything in a 170k gtkcombobox.c without knowing much about the inner workings.

Wrong colors only in the combobox

I played around a bit more and the problems seems to be gone when switching from ClearlooksClassic to the new Clearlooks, although the bug also exists (to different degrees) in other themes (Crux, Glossy, Glider, Industrial, Mist).
