Description Gandalf Lechner 2012-07-25 08:17:49 UTC
In some recent version, a slim bar/widget at the top of the playlist was introduced to control the dynamic playlists feature, with buttons to switch it off and to repopulate. That is really cool and actually something I wanted for a long time =) . 

However, currently it is designed in medium blue on dark blue and can therefore basically only be operated either by amarok instinct or eagle eyes.. see screenshot. Any chance of changing the colors to something more readable?

Reproducible: Always

This is already fixed in the upcoming Amarok 2.6 by this commit:

Use proper color in "Dynamic Playlist" notification strip

...it was not using style's link colour, from QPalette documentation:
> Note that we do not use the Link and LinkVisited roles when rendering
> rich text in Qt, and that we recommend that you use CSS

I didn't know this.

This should fix low-contrast problem with Obsidian Coast color scheme
and the like. It is still not optimal, but that would require
rethinking PaletteHandler::highlightColor().
