    Please try as follows...

    • Open Demo Grid Local Data
    • Select the Metro theme
    • Click on the filter icon (any column)
    • Play with the comboboxes (select, hover, blur, etc.)

    If you hover with the mouse, the background is green. Most of the time, the text color is white. However, sometimes it is gray and very difficult to read. I can make it gray by...

    • hover the second "is equal to" combobox
    • click on it
    • the drop down appears
    • click on it again
    • the drop down is hidden
    • move the mouse away

    Hi Michael,

    If the current colors of the Metro theme does not fit the needs of your scenario, I would suggest you modify it via our ThemeBuilder for Kendo UI.

    Wish you a great day!

    Hello Dimiter,

    thanks a lot for the answer. Did you have a look at the dialog? Are you sure that this is the color combination that Telerik intended?

    Hello Georgi,

    thanks a lot for your answer.

    As I really think that this is something which should be improved on Telerik's side, may I repeat my question, which was...

    Did you have a look at the dialog? Are you sure that this is the color combination that Telerik intended?

    Hello Michael,

    If I understood correctly, you are talking about the text colour on focused state (as shown in the attached picture). I can confirm that this is a bug in the Metro theme which we will try to address as soon as possible.

    Hello Alexander,

    thanks a lot for the answer.

    Yes, you are right. This is the color combination that I was talking about. I am glad that you also regard it as bad.

    Hello Alexander,

    the PanelBar shows the same color combination and should also be changed.

    Hello Michael,

    Thank you for the feedback.

    PanelBar widget uses slightly different states compared to the ones of DropDownList.
    We are aware of this problem and will provide a fix for it, however it will not be available in the next official release which is scheduled for the second half of this month. Most probably we will try to address the issue in Q1 Service Pack.

    Hello Michael,

    This is not a quick fix - it requires a lot changes in the framework's CSS files. We have plans to provide a fix in the next official release which is scheduled for July.
    Please accept my apology for the inconvenience caused.

    Hi Michael,

    The fix is not included in the Beta release. It should be ready for the official Q3 release which is scheduled for second half of July.

    Hello Alexander,

    thanks a lot for the answer. As you are speaking of "July", it is probably Q2 and not Q3, though. But if the fix comes next month, this is prefect.
