I’m using shell.openPath to allow the user to open a folder using the operating system explorer/finder to manage files inside it. In general it works well, once I’d added
"extensions": [ "" ] into
launchProcess in the manifest.
But the description linked above says you can add a 2nd ‘developerText’ argument to convey a message to the user, which would probably be quite useful.
Yes, it works, but it’s always drawn in black, regardless of the Photoshop theme. So in a dark theme it’s not very useful.
I can’t help quoting Douglas Adams:
Every time you try to operate one of these weird black controls that are labelled in black on a black background, a little black light lights up black to let you know you’ve done it
Is there a way around this? Is there a better way to report suboptimal behaviour than noting it here?
