In what Eclipse source plug-in/file is default "ButtonFace" color set? [message #473749] Fri, 16 May 2008 16:52 Go to next message

Hi,

In the help preferences, there is the following preference:
advanced.toolbarBackground

And the help file says that the Default = ButtonFace

In what Eclipse source plugin or file can I see what this default
"ButtonFace" gets set to?

I've looked into the source files for the help system's plug-ins, and
did a search of the eclipse.* newsgroups, and am stuck on how best to
search further.

Actually, if there's a general way to search Eclipse source for
particular strings using the Workbench/SDK, I'd appreciate pointers
about that also. :-)

Thanks,
Lee Anne

Hi Lee Anne,
ButtonFace is a color value defined in the CSS 2 specification:
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/ui.html#system-colors

It will be set to whatever value the user has specified for this UI item
in the OS control panel.

Hope this helps,
Pierre

Hi Pierre,

Thanks so much for this, it's spot on! I changed my Windows display
settings to use "Pumpkin", and applied, and when Windows refreshed, the
infocenter webapp frame coloring changed to reflect it.

Thanks again!
