Summary14984: Admin backend: Color of selected options is confusing
Description

The color of switches in the admin backend is really confusing. Grey means active, which might be clear when there are at least three options, but whenever there are only two options (e.g., on/off) it looks as if the other option was activated. It would be good to use lime-green as in the homepage settings.

TagsNo tags attached.

Yes, you're right. If I recall right, for example some warnings are in red, some in green. Do you already have a list of points that could be changed?

Same issue in 3.X :

  1. text-primary and text-info and text-success are near same
  2. difficult to tell if bg-primary is success or not
  3. btn-primary and btn-info and btn-success are near same
  4. Success row show bigger (issue in statitictics.css)

Some other issue

In home page settings, those are switches. In the global settings those are buttongroups.
I would back your proposal to use a dark shade of the main color as a background for the selected option.
This has to be talked about in the team, though.

The LimeSurvey color scheme is based on a monocolored scheme, meaning success and primary are the same colours, and Info being a gradient of that color.
This was so since LS2.5. It is also repeated in the fruity themes based on the backend colors.
We won't change this in LS4.

meaning success and primary are the same colours

But why remove a colour of Bootsrap ? Succes and primary didn't have same meaning …

Ok, but still : no difference between success/primary or danger/primary make it very complex to use …

See for sample
bootswatch Journal : primary red, danger orange
bootswatch Cosmo : primary blue, info purple
bootswatch United : primary orange, danger darker red

And still :

  1. table Success row show bigger (issue in statitictics.css)
  2. Why success of Bay of many is blue ?

Also this is the scope of a new ticket.
