public enum ThemeColor

Member nameDescription

Used by the Luna theme; the localized color name is Olive.


Used by the Luna theme; the localized color name is Sliver.


Used by the Luna, Aero, and Classic themes; the localized color name is Blue.

Each theme potentially has multiple color variants, which, presumably, are visually similar but in different colors. Luna, for example, has all three color variants: Homestead, Metallic, and NormalColor. Aero and Royale have NormalColor.

Classic doesn't have a color variant, but instead uses color schemes, including Pumpkin, Rose, and Spruce. A color scheme, unlike a color variant, defines values for each of the colors which make up the system palette as well as certain values for certain metrics like font names and sizes.
