hi there

tracking Style incompatibilities (i have a daaaark app front) i was wondering why the tooltip was showing back text.
i tracked it down to here:

DrawSmartText() is used to draw, and it uses DefaultInk as color, which is static Black().

Draw.h:376
inline Color InvertColor() { return Color(255, 0); }
inline Color DefaultInk() { return Black(); } //TODO!


the TODO is not from me Smile so its been already in mind to change it to something rational.

why not change it to SColorText() ?

BTW: whats the matter with InvertColor? it is used in RichText and GridCtrl and in 2 places in Ctrl..

Thanks. Actually, it should have been SColorInfoText. Now fixed.

It is a sort of nasty hack - in DrawRect, in screen, this acts as inverting all image bits (instead setting them to color). Useful for painting selections...
