Hi,

Can we have mIRC to make use of Microsoft Windows native dark mode. This has been available for a while now. Would be really useful for screen with high nits output!

Some dark mode support documentation is available here from Microsoft

Thanks in advance

I'm working on a Dark mode in my script, but would be nice to have dark scrollbars and menubar too

This is on my to-do list. Unfortunately, Windows 10/11 do not currently fully support dark mode in Win32 applications. A Win32 application has to enable dark mode and implement custom handling of WM_CTLCOLOR* for every control, in all windows and dialogs. mIRC currently has over a hundred dialogs. So adding dark mode support will be a pretty large and time-consuming project.
