Note: I have updated the VSDark gist to work with the Latest Clarion10. The previous version would cause an exception in the docking container rendering for some reasons. It appears it doesn’t like certain values in the GradientEnd property.
I did look into enumerating all the PAD controls and tweaking the backgrounds but there is very specific painting going on in some of them that makes it just not worthwhile without some changes in the internals of the IDE I think.
Hope that helps!
p.s. Thanks to @jbrugger recently for helping me clarify this process
My eyes are hurting with the bright white background color in the IDE…
The ideas mentioned here appears to be useful. But the links to download IDE-AddIns are not functional anymore.
Is it actually possible to change the background color of the apptree
On Win10, if you press Windows Key + A, you should get the Toast notification window popup and you might have the Night light button at the bottom. Switch it on by toggling the switch and to adjust the brightness, right mouse click on the button and choose Go to Settings.
Alternatively, Start button, Gear Icon labeled Settings, in the search box type Night Light, in the Display window select Night light settings, or in the Cortana search box on the task bar just type Night Light and select the result.
In the Night light settings window, I have the slider at 40 which reduces the glare sufficiently to stop my retina’s from aching.
I also have the monitors RGB set to Red 90, Green 80 and Blue 80. It means the white is more like reading the Financial Times ie the white is more orange, but it enables me to spend hours in front of the monitors.
Side Fact. Old Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) TV’s and Monitors emit X rays, which would also make eyes water if too close to them.
