Description Prashant manu 2014-04-01 09:51:08 UTC
Step to reproduce:
1. Create a iOS StoryBoard project in VS 2010
2. Open storyboard file and move to Properties window of default view controller.
3. Navigate across widget, layout and event subtabs.

Actual Result:
In VS 2010, section heading in Properties window for different widget/controls appears blurred/greyed out and hence not
easily readable. Whereas in VS 2012, 2013 it is appearing correctly. 

Expected Result:
In Properties window, section headings should be readable and appear correctly.

Screencast for this:

Test Env:
VS 2010
Xamarin.iOS 1.99.637

I switched those labels to Bold instead of Semi-bold. That should help with non Segoe fonts like in VS2010.

Today, we have checked this issue with:
VS 2010
Windows 8
XVS 1.99.653

We are still getting this issue, section headings in Properties window for different widget/controls still appears blurred/greyed out in VS 2010.

Hence reopening this issue.

I did a bunch of styling fixes that makes the situation much better on the blue VS theme.

I have checked this issue with latest Xamarin for VS and VS 2010. Now, section heading in Properties window for different widget/controls does not appears blurred/grayed and these are easily readable.

VS 2010
Xamarin for Visual Studio (2d9086d7b872b8e2bd324d712b6ba6d930c18a5f)

Xamarin.iOS (2d9086d7b872b8e2bd324d712b6ba6d930c18a5f)

Hence, closing this issue.
