High contrast mode setting for textbox in a jface dialog [message #673420] Mon, 23 May 2011 15:19

I have SWT Text box in a JFace Dialog along with other controls like buttons and tableviewer. In normal mode, if I don't set the background, the text box defaults to gray looking as if it is a read-only field. I changed it to white. But, in a high contrast mode, both the text and background become white making the text non-readable (unless highlighted).

I tried 2 things that worked:
1) if ( !parent.getDisplay().getHighContrast() )

2) text.setbackground( parent.getDisplay().getSystemColor( SWT.COLOR_LIST_BACKGROUND ));
text.setForeground( parent.getDisplay().getSystemColor( SWT.COLOR_LIST_FOREGROUND ));
What are the COLOR_LIST_XXX constants meant for?

I want to know what is the coding practice to create such UI that works in both normal and high contrast mode. There isn't much text available around.

Thanks in advance,
