Incorrect visual style of most of Mp3tag menus

Hello,

At least some of the menus of MP3Tag use some different style and do not correctly obey the menu style imposed by the active high-contrast black theme, as they should.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Enable high contrast mode in Windows. To do so in Windows 10, do the following:
    1.1. Open Windows Settings (press Windows+I).
    1.2. Go to Ease of access -> High contrast mode.
    1.3. Toggle the switch for the high contrast mode.
    1.4. From the drop-down list box for a high contrast theme, select the "High Contrast Black" one (it should be selected by default, I think.
  2. Observe how do look some standard menus in Windows (e.g. context menus in Windows Explorer), including what colors are used for highlighting menu items, for inactive/disabled menu items, etc.
  3. Launch Mp3tag.
  4. Observe how do look most of the menus in Mp3Tag, including what colors are used for highlighting menu items, for inactive/disabled menu items, etc.

Actual results:
Most of the menus in Mp3Tag seam to be using a somewhat different style and/or colors than the standard menus in Windows, when a high contrast theme is used.

Expected results:
All of the menus in Mp3tag should use the same style and colors that the standard menus in Windows use, when a high contrast theme is used.

Test environment:

  • Operating system: Windows 10 Pro version 1903 (build 18362.418), 64-bit, in Bulgarian with all locale settings set to "Bulgarian".
  • Mp3tag version: 2.99a.

Thanks for reporting and the detailed description of the issue. I've reproduced it locally and will fix it with a future release of Mp3tag.

I've fixed this with Mp3tag v2.99b.
