Re: How to change text color on UI Control Component, Like DropDown

suggest it as a feature on jira. or write a custom component, the dropdown does not support this.

I think it's not a good idea to change native interface. Image what a mix it can introduce if every developer will make its own colors for stardard controls.

you must perform a custom component that allows you to change colors.

Implementing custom DropDown control isn't a trivial task. Better to use native one.

Re: How to change text color on UI Control Component, Like DropDown

I want to change dropdown text color because, from my creative design want it on dark blue color.

So I set the background container to dark blue, but can't change the text color to white.

I can't change the light theme to dark theme because will effect another control.

 

Yah, maybe I just keep on default color, and no set background color.

 

 

Thanks
