SonarLint Rule Description Font Color

(Ad) #1


I use Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers. Version: 2018-09 (4.9.0) with Dark Theme enabled.

Here is what I get in SonarLint Rules Description :

As you can see the font is dark, making it difficult to read. How can I change this font color to get a “white” one ?

Thanks for the help.

Here is how it looks on my side (Linux):

Are you using the official Dark Theme? What is your operating system? Also what is your version of SonarLint?

Hi Julien,

Thanks for the quick reply.

I’m using the official Dark Theme, also I’m on Windows 7 Pro x64.

Here is my SonarLint version :

I had it white like you at the beginning when I installed the plugin. But I dont know how, it changed to this black foreground color few days after the install.

I tried to uninstall / reinstall, without success…

Your last screenshot shows that your dark theme is not correctly applied (About Eclipse IDE is not dark) so maybe you have a configuration issue on your side.

The SonarLint Rule Description view is using colors provided by Eclipse (using a hidden component). You can see the code here:

Maybe this is not working properly on Windows. I will give a try asap, but I only have Windows 10, so not sure this will be the same behavior.

Thanks for the reply,

I do think the Dark Theme is applied as much as it can on W7.

The thing is I had it working for a while… Wich type of label use this hiddenLabel between those :


Waiting you to get back with results on W10…

Sorry for the late reply, but I was finally able to reproduce the issue on Windows 10.
