      Description

      Problem

      I'm using the dark theme. When I load a cmake project, it prompts the user for their desired cmake build location using a CMake Wizard dialog. Unfortunately, it looks like the text color part of the theme is applied to this CMake Wizard dialog, but the background remains white. I don't know about you, but I find it extremely hard to read light-gray text over a white background. It seems to be only affecting Windows. Screenshot is attached. The theme on the CMake Wizard dialog in Ubuntu seems to works fine.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      On Windows 8, here is what I did:
      1. Tools Menu -> Options...
      2. Select Environment in the left pane
      3. Under the General tab, change the theme from 'default' to 'dark'
      4. Click on "Apply". QtCreator should turn all dark and very cool and awesome.
      5. File Menu -> Open File or Project...
      6. Open any new CMakeLists.txt that was never generated before
      7. The unreadable CMake Wizard dialog should be obvious

      Workarounds

      Options:
      a. Don't try to read what's in the CMake Wizard dialog and just hit 'Next'
      b. Don't use the dark theme, and cry.
      c. Tell your boss you want to work only in a Linux environment. Who would want to use Windows anyway?
