I created a simple response window that contains only a datawindow control. Both window and datawindow have buttonface as background color.
When I run this window, both of them have the same color when not using themes and also when using all themes except Flat Design Grey.
On this theme, the window appears like this:


Since the rest of themes are painted correctly, I suspect that something is wrong with the theme.json file, but I am not sure I quite understand it yet...

The datawindow/background-color is #FFFFFF while the window/background-color is #E6E6E6.

In all other themes, window and datawindow are the same.

If I change the datawindow/background-color to #E6E6E6, the window is painted correctly....

What do you think about that?

(PB19/R1 has also the same problem)

Hi Yiannis;

  If this is easily & consistently reproducible in the R2 beta, please open a support ticket for this issue.

FWIW: PB2019 GA does have theme issues. Hopefully by R2 GA, these will all be addressed as the design and execution internally is quite different.

Regards  ... Chris

You can easily change the theme settings for your install. Just remember to share you customized themes with your fellow developers so you have consistent development and testing experience. - AND - remember to include all relevant themes in your app deployments. 

Please log a bug if this looks like an error to you. This triggers Appeon to look into the issue. It may be a design decision - in which case you have learned. But it may just be a "miised it" - there are a lot of color definitions in each theme's .JSON file.

That's why I made this post, because I thought it maybe a design decision that I am unable to understand yet.

Thanks Michael.
