    hard coded colors - dark skin

    hi!

    since i'm trying to set my win7 up using completely dark style, which is an awful undertaking in itself, i was trying to get sharpdevelop use a dark skin, too. since there's no native option i used the "theme tool" addon, wich helps a lot.

    still, there are some areas of hard coded colors or use of system colors that render the whole undertaking unviewable.

    there are certain areas which look awful with dark system background+light foreground:

    -"matching symbols" use a defined, unchangable color

    -debug/inspect use lightgray background + system color foreground (which is kinda white on my machine, so i can't see the values)

    -the same goes for: tab labels in windows,  find derived/base symbols list

    -callstack is, on the other hand,  always black text, wich also doesn't read nice on dark gray

     

    could someone please provide a solution to this, at least in connection with "theme tool"?

    thanks!

    forgot to mention:

    -ctrl+tab switch windows also uses default foreground on blueish background

    (maybe in more places like wizards/dialoges, didn't check it all)
