Description Vincent Dondain [MSFT] 2014-07-09 11:42:40 UTC
The contrast between the green dot and the red dot is the Test Result window makes it very difficult for colorblind users to see the difference between good and  bad tests. 

Two colors like those will be better :

Or changing green dots by blue dots.

Hey Vincent,

Thanks again for the feedback.

We can't change the dot to blue, our devs (and so any other devs) recognize passed test as a green dot, and blue is used in other places (it reminds actions and attributes like current, information etc). I'll change the dots to reflect your color recommendations.

Can you access https://github.com/xamarin/icons ?

Yes it's way better, I have no problem with mixed results now and I agree that we should keep the green dots for success (:

Thank you very much.
