  • Breaking changes to themes and controls

    The control themes system is now a lot simpler.

    • Themes only come from two places, the control directly or from the library.
    • Each control has a ThemeColors property that controls the colors of the theme. If set to null the colors are pulled from the parent console/window.
    • The Console/Window types have a ThemeColors property that specify the colors for all controls. If set to null the colors are instead pulled from the library.
    • The library has been simplified. Each control type is registered with a theme via the Library.SetControlTheme. To overwrite a default theme, set it in the library.

    When you create a new a control, and thus have a new theme, register it with the library SadConsole.Themes.Library.Default.SetControlTheme(typeof(yourControl), new ThemeType()); When a control is created it queries the library for a theme, which is a clone of the one registered with the library. If you want to override the library-supplied theme, just set the Control.THeme property.

    Setting colors for a console or a control is easy. Each control and ControlsConsole or Window has a ThemeColors property. Set this to

I know I'm not supposed to add breaking changes without increasing the major version. However, V9 is already labeled and I wasn't planning on this change. This change was actually created for V9 as a way to solve the problems with v8's theme system. But it proved so simple to implement that I wanted to port it.

Because of the breaking change, I'm setting this version to a strange one, v8.99.
