Hello!

I'm not here to ask about a Dark Mode, but to ask you guys, attention to a real problem that affects a lot of people, some in a medical way, others are just the extensive time exposure to the White and bright color.

I know that Win32/Win64 can't deal with dark for now (there's a new Microsoft project going on this).

The white color can hurt (for real) most people's eyes in dark places or after many hours on the computer.
So, that's why I'll ask our "I personally don't like this guy" to go help someone in another thread.

The idea is quite simple:

The object inspector has a configuration of color it didn't offend anyone!
Did the IDE Options > Object Inspector > Colors offend you?

For the Lazarus default components, as I see, all of them have property color.
Only the Page/Tab components didn't have color but can use with a Shape component to paint his background.

Again: I'm not asking for a true dark mode, but only the ability to change it for something less aggressive as white color.

Before comment, please, see the image related!

Ps: Here is my personal set of colors from code editor in xml.

Oops, my mistake. I own a license copy of WinXP. I purchased and installed in my VirtualBox for testing software. But recently I installed a Windows 7 too. I mistakenly started that Win7 for testing the color scheme.

Anyway, I would recommend to set the background colors for highlighting strings and numbers. That's very useful especially when debugging very long code.

Thank you for your posting.
This would be so great!

My doctor advised me not to use "dark mode", but just to avoid this "white".
So a soft orange or smooth pink as background would be nice.

I tried to change the colors, but ended up with a mess.
So an option to click on for changing all would be great.

Instead of a dark mode a "soft-mode" would be quite more interesting to me.
Not "black on white", but "black on very bright orange".

Why I prefer the latter is, that the time to focus anything is shorter.
The moment, I have to try harder to read something, my eyes grew tired as well.

As for as the editor colors go, there is a nice selection: https://wiki.freepascal.org/UserSuppliedSchemeSettings
And the one posted by GALD could be added there too, if not yet done.

I have written a small package for ide that changes the background colour of a few types of controls. Maybe someone can use it to improve the problem a bit.

Warning: this package is a hack that doesn't pretend to implement styles for the ide, only to remove some white colour.


Usage: open the package, modify the colour constants, compile and install in the IDE.

sorry for the newbie question:
How to import a color scheme? I only find a button "export", but no "import".

The colors used in Plan 9 were based on research and is available in color(6), or if you don't have a Plan 9 installation, then read here https://9p.io/magic/man2html/6/color

In Visual Studio Code I use the Remedy color theme which reminds me of Plan 9's Rio window manager subdued color theme.

by copying them into a folder called "userschemes" in the primary-config-path

Menu: View > Ide Internals > About IDE: the primary conf path is listed there.
