Turn grey size bar green again

dpg's profile image dpg posted 11 months ago in Feature discussion Permalink

Hello Folks,

I noticed since the new Update the size bar of Database is grey, not green like before.

Is there a way to change it back to green? Why is this necessary for us?

If its grey, it means for me and many others Users Heidi SQL went offline or is not connected to database. Green means for many users i talked in my private area, online or progress, grey means dead or offline.

Can someone explain me, why there was the decision to change it from grey to green? I searched a lot but I cant find something about this topic.

What do you think about it?

Cheers, Sebastian

That custom color is not synchronizable with the new themes. And so it was suddenly totally annoying when having a dark theme, or whatever. So I changed that custom color into something that works with all themes.

Thank you for the fast answer. I understand.

I see the point if you do home office, in a dark room at night, that this green neon color can laser out your eyes. How about the color of the other green informations, which seems to be darker?

I am not familar as many years ago with MS Software. I dont know on which Framework HeidiSQL based and how diffcult it is to add a new libaray with settings or to make a setting list like in Notepadd++ or other IDE, to change colors complete and share it with other developer.

I would like to help, but I dont know how.
