Control content background
If you look at the little app
http://www.aule-browser.com/kanji/henshall-kanji.curl

you can see that the control panel for a RecordForm with a RecordView has a field whose background will be that of the user's desktop settings - on Windows I use a pale yellow for the background of windows, so that is what I get in the record counter (you can see this in Windows by changing your desktop theme for a moment ... it is very common on Ubuntu laptops to have a non-white theme and it will be more so once we leave behind back-lit screens ...) In my struggle to master Japanese, I often run pages white on black or gold on indigo. Android users may often do this ... ?

Even if it makes sense for this to be a user desktop default, we should let designers override it more easily that can be done now. A user running white text on black backgrounds for visual handicap will not see that record counter.

Can we do this for Windows 8 ?

RE: Control content background
Did you have a look at our styled controls? Most of your expectations could be implemented with styled controls, I guess .
If there is anything you want but not there, please let us know. Thanks!

As I recall, the styled controls also have this issue ( or had it in 7.0 ) at least on Windows.

I will go check with Mike Gordon's tool under 8.0
