Darker Interface options on windows?
« on: March 28, 2015, 04:25:27 am »
Using code::blocks on windows, is there a way to replace the generic grey interface outside of just the editor. Its all well and good to have a nice dark theme for the editor. But having a rather jarring bright/gray interface around it seems rather... strange. While having done some searching I've only seem to come up with the option of adjusting the default way in which windows itself draws the windows to make this chance. Is there any other way on windows 8.1 or the like?

Nope...

May I ask why this is? Is there some reason it just can't be done. Or is it more like its never really been a needed feature and has never really been looked into?

Because wxwidgets uses the win32 api and thus it doesn't support custom themes.
If you need per app themes go talk to wxwidget devs and probably start porting it to wpf or whatever microsoft toolkit supports themes.
