RGB is after you!

There are quite a few colors present in DC++, even if you don’t pay attention to them. You can’t actually change some of them.
All of the RGB (Red Green Blue) values can be inputted here to see their colors. (Blogspot doesn’t allow me to easily show them.)
Those you can change:
Download bar: RGB(55, 170, 85) (this is only present if you have enabled ‘Show progress bars for transfers’) (this color is also what appears in ‘Network statistics’… It is not depended on the option)
Upload bar: RGB(205, 60, 55) (this is only present if you have enabled ‘Show progress bars for transfers’) (this color is also what appears in ‘Network statistics’… It is not depended on the option)
Standard background color: RGB(255, 255, 255)
Now to those you can’t change… There are actually three different colors involved in each tab. There’s a border color, a background color and a text color.
The background color is always RGB(128, 128, 128) and the text color is always RGB(0, 0, 0) (sometimes going bold – if you have enabled it for that kind of tab). What is changed is always the border color (which is what the following colors change).
If a user is online, and you have a private message window open with him/her, the color will be RGB(0, 255, 255) and if the user is offline, the color is RGB(255, 0, 0).
If you are connected (not “disconnected” or any other error message) to a hub, the color is RGB(0, 255, 0). Otherwise, the color will be RGB(255, 0, 0).
File lists have RGB(255, 0, 255).
When going through the source finding these values, I came across RGB(127, 127, 255) which apparantly can be found in the search frame. Though, I couldn’t figure out when the color is triggered and I have honestly never seen that color in DC++.
