Theoretically controlBackgroundColor would the right choice because
NSToolbar isn't a precisely bounded clickable area like a button, but a clickable area which varies with displayed content like a table view or a browser column. However controlBackgroundColor is currently white in GNUstep and that's the problem because a completely white toolbar would be

Actually, controlBackgroundColor is set to NSLightGray by default (0.667),
which is the same value
as for example, windowBackgroundColor ... and personally I think
controlBackgroundColor would be fine for the
toolbar. Although we can have (as of now) a different colorname if you
really want to have a different color.. :-)

Well, some confusion here ...

I don't know why but I'm always thinking table views have a white background, I'm probably spending too much time on Mac OS X ;-)

perhaps Quentin tried using controlBackgroundColor and it looked ugly ... might be worth trying again in case the problem was actually some bug at the time and it wouold now work with controlBackgroundColor.

I will try again.

My feeling is that, if the standard colors are enough, use them.


Personally I would tend to prefer putting the additional system colors in
the default system color list, that would be
simpler. Sure, thoses colors aren't in OpenStep, but that's not a problem --
the default system color list is on the
implementation side... so as long as we mark possible new accessors methods
for theses additional colors as
specifically "gnustep only" then, I don't see a problem by putting all the
colors used by gnustep in the system color
list. But well, that's a matter of taste.

Yes ... I agree that keeping a single color list is by far the simplest (maintainable, easy to use etc) option.

That's my opinion also and I would like to move my NSColor category in NSColor.m unless Alexander or Fred have a different opinion.
