Eclipse ADT - Darkest Dark Theme Issue

Hello,

I'm using #ADT version 2020-12 (4.18.0) with Darkest Dark Theme and I have this annoying mismatch in the icon/text coloring.

Thomas Fiedler: do you know if this is an issue of #ADT itself or something related with the Darkest Dark Theme?

Thank you

Sérgio

    Dear Sérgio,

    the "Darkest Dark" theme is not an official theme from Eclipse Foundation. It is know that it cause issues in lots of Eclipse application. As the theme is not open source we even cannot look into it to find out what the problem may be. ADT does not officially support this theme.

    Regards,
    Matthias

    Thanks for the reply Thomas Fiedler.

    I'm with Frederic Girod.

    In fact, 80% of the developers I know off are using Darkest Dark because typically developers prefer that mood.

    I would suggest that SAP takes advantage of the Darkest Dark and ensure ADT is compatible with it, otherwise, the community will appreciate a dedicated dark them for ADT, like we have for webIDE or BAS.

    Thanks

    Hi Sergio,

    I talked with some of the experts here at SAP about the darkest dark theme. Overall we cannot recommend to use this theme together with the ADT tools. There are severe issues and strange effects in ADT together with the theme.

    Regards,

    Thomas.

    To anyone interested, it seems some people are using the Eclipse Spectrum Theme with success.

    Issues are being addressed specifically for ADT like Missing styles for table borders and properties view background

    Meanwhile, I have switched to the bright side of the force!

    Thanks
