View Full Version : What does

I've just tried using "InstallColors" on NSIS 1.42 (even inverting the colors and using /windows) and have seen no visible effect....
dunno where your problem is .. for me it works fine.
InstallColors 993300 FFFF00

Not exactly a helpful answer, as I said I inverted the colors and this had no effect so WHAT IS IT SUPPOSED TO EFFECT? It may have an effect somewhere I just want to know where. In case it matters I'm using Windows 2000 SP1. You of course didn't mention your operating system....
sorry but what are you talking about?
the command InstallColors defines the colors of the listbox
which shows the details after installing.
if you inverted the colors the listbox should have had the lime color and the text should have been black
if you chose /WINDOWS the listbox should have behaved like your windows settings. in my case it is white with black font.
if you set ShowInstDetails to nevershow the InstallColors command has no effect, as the details are not shown.

Thanks, after your previous response I tried again. This time I displayed the listbox and saw the colors.
The documentation does not say what the colors are for and I think it would be reasonable for them to affect the installer colors and not just a list box which may or may not be displayed... For what the command does "ListBoxColors" would have been more appropriate.
Anyway I'm picked a better color, I know what it does and now I'm happy :-)
Of course if I real "InstallColors" comes along I'll try it out also.
I could make one small point here, I think that rather than have new commands for all of these types of things (particularly commands whose placement is restricted, I think it would be better to have variables such as perhaps
"$ListBoxBg" and "$ListBoxFg" etc.
