Description Ondrej Langr 2008-04-03 19:25:37 UTC
The appearance of selection in the two lists in "New Project Wizard" is inconsistent. See the attached image. The proper
Nimbus solution is a selection extending all the way and white text color on the selected line.

Comment 2 Milan Kubec 2008-04-03 19:51:34 UTC
The list on the right side looks on all L&Fs the same, so do you mean to fix the appearance on all L&Fs? The difference
is in the left list which looks special in Nimbus L&F.

Lowering priority according to Bug Priority guidelines.

Please select proper MIME type when attaching images.

Comment 3 Ondrej Langr 2008-04-04 10:07:30 UTC
Actually, the problem is with the right list, which does not change appearance to follow used L&F and thus is not
consistent with other components. Its appearance should follow used L&F, be it Nimbus, Metal or anything else. 

The current look does not follow selected L&F, so this is IMO "incorrect visual appearance" rather than "minor
annoyance". Increasing priority accordingly. 

Apologies for the incorrect MIME type, will do next time ;).
Comment 4 Ondrej Langr 2008-04-04 10:20:06 UTC
Actually, there's also an issue with the left list which makes the text color of selected line switch to black if focus
is moved to other component. Selected row in JList should (according to Nimbus spec.) have always white text
independently of where focus is.

Dark themes were moved to the NetBeans Update Center for NB 7.4

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.
