    Default Losing palette colors when app goes out of focus.

    I have an app and on certain components I change the palette slightly. I do this by putting this code in the Widget Constructor that contains the component.

    Qt Code:
    1. if (darkTheme) {
    2. QPalette p = ui->strStringEdit->palette( );
    3. p.setColor( QPalette::Active, QPalette::Base, darkPalette.color(QPalette::AlternateBase));
    4. ui->strStringEdit->setPalette( p );
    5. }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 
    But when the application loses focus (by going to another application) the colors go back to the original colors. When I select my app again the modifications come back.

    How do I freeze the palette?

    Thanks,

    Hi, you probably also need to modify the palette for QPalette::Inactive.

    Thanks! Changed my code to this and it worked!

    Qt Code:
    1. if (darkTheme) {
    2. QPalette p = ui->strStringEdit->palette( );
    3. p.setColor( QPalette::Active, QPalette::Base, darkPalette.color(QPalette::AlternateBase));
    4. p.setColor( QPalette::Inactive, QPalette::Base, darkPalette.color(QPalette::AlternateBase));
    5. ui->strStringEdit->setPalette( p );
    6. }
