Description tdruiva 2015-12-04 17:40:32 UTC

I'm playing with GtkInfoBar and the background color for bellow messages types, in the theme Adwaita, is all the same (blue)

Only GTK_MESSAGE_OTHER is different.
I saw this behavior on Linux and on Mac as well.

If I change the theme for Raleigh then is ok, each message type has different color.

Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2015-12-04 18:46:45 UTC
This is an intentional change on the part of the theme designers. There is no guarantee that the different message types get different (or any) colors.
Comment 2 Sébastien Wilmet 2016-05-22 14:00:58 UTC
When doing such change, please update the documentation!

See gtk_info_bar_set_message_type().
Comment 3 Sébastien Wilmet 2016-05-22 14:03:38 UTC
And document also the *why*, not just the what. You'll make application developers less frustrated with GTK+.

Patches would help. We're trying our best, but there is a handful of contributors, and a 5000+ symbol api...
