Description Greg Jungman 2011-10-24 21:43:33 UTC
When I upgraded to 3.8 beta from 3.7 I had to adjust the below.  I have code that assigns the font, I had to change the code to not execute the below command if the font color was black, otherwise the text would be white, on a white background.

               if (!foreground.equals(Color.BLACK))// poi version 3.8 beta required to fix some bugs, but can't handle black foreground
                    ((XSSFFont) font).setColor(new XSSFColor(foreground));

i can confirm it in 3.8 release.

i think it is the incorrect missing use of the method "correctRGB" in the 2 constructors of XSSFColor.
calling this.setRgb(...) instad of ctColor.setRgb(...) would fix it.

change XSSFColor constructors to adjust black and white

additionally patched org.apache.poi.xssf.model.ThemesTable as it used the constructor.

this patch will change the behavior of XSSFColor !

Also bug 53274 sounds related.
