    I'm new to Welkin Suite coming over from Visual Studio. In Visual Studio when I start to type the code completion list will pop up after ever so many characters. The list shows the selected item background in blue and the foreground text is white. Currently in my Welkin Suite install, the background is white and the foreground text is white.

    This makes it a bit hard to see what the current selection is in the code completion list. Is there an option in Fonts & Colors to fix this?

    Thanks!

      Follow up to this post last night I found a workaround that I am happy with. Being that I couldn't see what I was selecting while the selection box was so closely colored to the actual text, and I couldn't manipulate the Code Completion List as I could in VS 15, 17 - I installed the 'ColorThemEditor' extension and switched the Welkin Suite theme from Dark to Solarized (Dark). This allowed me to view what I was selecting.

      There are still some kinks in the IDE, but so far so good for my trial of this really nice IDE.

      Big thanks to the Welkin Team!

        Hi Randy,


        I'm glad that you've found a temporary workaround for this situation because we'll need some time to investigate the issue.

        It's absolutely strange that you have such kind of issue with background == foreground text color in the code completion list - we're already looking on what this could have happened.

        At the same time it seems that the completions list on your screen is "not large enough" and not all possible suggestions are shown there. Can you please let me know if you experience any issues with the suggestions list - like something is missing from it?

        Can you please send us a bugreport from the IDE directly so we can take a look at your logs - there might be some interesting additional details that can help us resolving both issues for you. You can do this from the main menu -> Help -> Report a bug.


        Thank you,

        Vladimir

          Hi Vladmir,

          Thanks for your response. I believe it may have been an issue with Windows Server 2012 R2. I run my dev environments virtualized in Virtual Box and I had originally installed Welkin Suite on a Win Server 2012 R2 image. Now, as you probably know, to get the best experience virtualized I was working off of a pre-updated MSDN iso and once installed disabled auto updates, or updates checks as to not slow down the VM as it is optimized for that specific ISO+updates. I decided to go out and get an updated Win 10 Pro iso on MSDN Sub and try my look at installing Welkin Suite on that. After the install and after setting everything up again, it looks like everything is working as intended. I.e., the code completion list box is working as intended.


          I believe the issue might be that I was running a pretty old iso of Win Server 12 R2 without any of the newer updates. This is what I am thinking as the Win 10 Pro iso was updated most recently. I will see if I can get the logs for you guys in the coming days.


          Thanks!

            Hi Randy,


            Interesting situation :)

            Thank you for the update and I'm really happy that it's working ok for you.

            However if you'll find the logs to send us we'll try to look and confirm the reason of the issue and, maybe will be able to resolve it, even for the 2k12R2 without updates.


            Thank you,

            Vladimir
