Can't set font and colours of stock buttons

Reported by: hzd_byte Owned by:

Patch: yes


In wxGTK, when I create buttons with wxID_OK and wxID_CANCEL and text "OK" / "Cancel", standard GTK's OK and Cancel buttons created with bitmaps.

But text's color for this buttons doesn't change with SetForegroundColour, and size of this buttons doesn't change with sizers automatically.

When I use my own ID's and/or labels, there is all ok.

It maybe normal that GTK+ doesn't allow changing the colour of the stock buttons but I don't understand the part about the sizers. Could you please explain better what the problem is?

But background color of these buttons changes!...

Look at attached image. Code for this (dialog's constructor):

wxSizer *sizerUp = new wxBoxSizer(wxVERTICAL);
m_desc = new QSPTextBox(this, ID_DESC);
wxTextCtrl *inputStr = new wxTextCtrl(this, wxID_ANY);
wxStaticLine* line = new wxStaticLine(this, wxID_STATIC, wxDefaultPosition, wxDefaultSize, wxLI_HORIZONTAL);
sizerUp->Add(m_desc, 1, wxALL | wxGROW, 5);
sizerUp->Add(inputStr, 0, wxALL | wxGROW, 5);
sizerUp->Add(line, 0, wxALL | wxGROW, 5);
wxSizer *sizerBottom = new wxBoxSizer(wxHORIZONTAL);
wxButton *btnOk = new wxButton(this, wxID_OK, _("OK"));
wxButton *btnCancel = new wxButton(this, wxID_CANCEL, _("Cancel"));
sizerBottom->Add(btnOk, 0, wxALL, 5);
sizerBottom->Add(btnCancel, 0, wxALL, 5);
wxSizer *sizerMain = new wxBoxSizer(wxVERTICAL);
sizerMain->Add(sizerUp, 1, wxGROW, 0);
sizerMain->Add(sizerBottom, 0, wxALIGN_RIGHT, 0);
sizerMain->SetMinSize(300, 200);

I guess we should't use the stock buttons if non-default font or colours are used, unless it's somehow possible to apply the fonts/colours to stock buttons too?

I'm attaching patch that fixes the issue with the style of label.
Sizing works fine for me.

Thanks Marcin, applied to the trunk as r54138. This should be safe to backport to 2.8, shouldn't it?
