Today I noticed one really annoying thing in a new layout from a designer.
In the new design, all dropdowns had much darker background than other text inputs.
For one, the contrast was quite poor, but what annoyed me the most, was that the difference of the background colour between dropdowns and text inputs in the same form made the dropdowns disappear and did not look like inputs at all.
Edit: The dropdowns have equal importance with all other inputs on the form.
So should all the form inputs (text inputs and dropdowns) have same (or atleast similar) background colour?
My brain says yes, but I don't want to go shouting to the designer before I'm sure it's not only me.
