Title: Codeblocks locked in light theme (Win10)
Post by: capmalo on February 19, 2019, 08:43:29 am
Hi everyone !

I heard that codeblocks uses the default parameters of the OS, but my codeblocks doesnt want to go in dark, it's locked in white even if windows is in dark theme (not a custom one, official win10 dark theme).

I can change editor color using a theme but not the entire IDE.

Is there a way to do that ?

I tried with 17.12 and the lastest nightly but same problem.

Thx for the help !

Have you tried any other wxWidgets application? Does the same thing happens?

I'm experiencing the same issue.

I'm using the official Windows 10 Dark theme and all the standard Windows applications are dark. I can change the editor theme but I cannot find a way to make C::B (17.12) enviroment dark though. :(

What do you mean by standard windows applications? Is notepad.exe dark?

Windows dark theme/light theme only applies to applications that use Microsoft's UWP toolkit.  Trying to use dark theme in a standard winapi application is not supported at this time.  See here (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/53501268/win10-dark-theme-how-to-use-in-winapi) for more.
