        Description

        Name: jk109818 Date: 10/11/2002


        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        oldest version where seen: Java version 1.4.0_01
        java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0_01-b03)
        Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0_01-b03, mixed mode)

        Has also happened on 1.4.1

        FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :Windows 2000, 5.00.2195,
        service pack 3


        ADDITIONAL OPERATING SYSTEMS : I have had reports on other
        operating systems as well - so it is consistent.



        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        In javahelp the search highlight was previously a light
        grey color. Now the search highlight appears as a dark
        blue - in checking this on Windows this highlight co-
        incides with the color defined in the windows area
        of 'Appearance/Scheme/selected item property.' This is
        fine in windows where the underlying font changes property
        to display as white when a dark color is displayed, but in
        this case the underlying font does *not* change color when
        a dark color is used in this selection. Whatever swing
        previously used in this area, please return to it.

        Much thanks.

        REGRESSION. Last worked in version 1.3.1

        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        1.create a javahelp system
        2.include it in an application
        3.choose to display a search item - note the color of the
        highlight.

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        Previously the highlight was a light gray (using the
        default windows color scheme) now the highlight is a dark
        blue (using the same color scheme.) After looking at the
        color scheme the color of the highlight can be changed by
        changing the color of the 'selected item property'.

        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.

        CUSTOMER WORKAROUND :
        Change the selected item property on the windows system.
        However, doing this also changes default windows uses.

        Release Regression From : 1.3.1
        The above release value was the last known release where this
        bug was known to work. Since then there has been a regression.
