Use Darcula aware JBColor

Reports usages of java.awt.Color.

These are not aware of "dark" themes (e.g., bundled "Darcula") and might result in bad looking UI.

Quick-fix replaces usages with JBColor, which defines "dark" color variant.


// bad: Color darkGreen = new Color(12, 58, 27); Color blue = Color.BLUE; // good: Color darkGreen = new JBColor(12, 58, 27); Color blue = JBColor.BLUE; Color green = new JBColor(new Color(12, 58, 27), new Color(27, 112, 39));
