Styling 3D control Shadow effects
« on: November 06, 2019, 03:06:33 PM »

Hey all,

I've been over the doc and have been playing with both the current FG color, as well as the control color commands, but haven't found any way to change the appearance of the drop shadows used in 3D controls.

In particular, we're evaluating a black on white theme, however the drop shadow on text in 3D controls remains black causing black text to appear smeared along the shadow axis.  Is there any way to change the colors used for these effects without abandoning the 3D look or built in controls?

Cheers!

Hello,

Are you referring to for example the shading effect on the text within a button widget? I will need to clarify with the development team if it is possible to change the colour of this shadow.

Yes, the shadow/highlight effect on text in the widgets.

In particular, setting a font color of black causes the text to look smeared due to the shadow color matching the font color.

Hello,

The development team are currently looking into the potential for removing this shadow.

I would however suggest that another option to remove it would be to place the button without anything in its text field and then use a text command to add text on top of it. You may also want to consider creating your own button icons and using bitmap cells to alternate between a 'pressed' and 'un-pressed' icon when a touch is detected.
