Possible Bug: wrong color ordering on OS X

Postby SwiftCoder » Sat Sep 17, 2005 17:11

Just wanted to find out if this is something I did wrong in the build options, or an actual bug:

On OS X the order of color components specified in XML files is RRAABBGG, instead of AARRGGBB.
It is not a very noticeable bug, because I have only found one place it causes any trouble:

In 'TaharezLook.looknfeel' the text color for Tooltips is specified as FF000000, which displays as red with an alpha of zero, i.e. it doesn't show, after a lot of bug hunting I found the order thing, so it works fine as 00FF0000, which displays correctly as black.

Is this a bug, or just a bad compile option? Is it specific to OS X?

Any thoughts would be welcome.


Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently.

yes, there is a bug somewhere with the colours
when i try to set the same color from the xml and from the code, the result on the screen is not the same, and thats often not what it should be.

i had a lot of irl problems so i stopped to work on this (and also on the new xcode project) but i will try to find where is the error soon (by trying the same things on macosx and linux)
