I ask the administrator to do just a demonstration of what acces is capable, here I present a new prototype screen with web styling interfaces.

I personally find it hard to read light grey text on a dark grey background. I do prefer the white on dark display, in general, though.

I believe that because it is an image, it gives a false impression that reading is bad.

But I can guarantee that the system guarantees a perfect reading

Is it a white font on a dark background, or is it a light gray font on a dark background?

If the former, I can understand, if it's the latter, I would not be inclined to use it. Others may feel differently, of course.

I find that color selection difficult to read as well.

I like the darker background, but I too would switch the font color to white (this is what I do on my on forms), but at the end of the day we're not the ones using the system. So if it is clear and legible to you, that's all that matters.

good job! just the text though.

I thought you have stopped posting samples of your interfaces. Keep it coming! I get motivated and inspired to design my interfaces the right way.

"...clear and legible to you, ...."

I suspect the true test would be when a group of users also had the opportunity to work with the interface over an extended period.

Calm down, like I said, it's just a prototype.

My working pattern will always be white background, and icons in blue as these images.

You asked for feedback....

You got feedback...

Maybe "calm down" is the wrong response....

well, just to put in my two cents worth, as calmly as possible: i would have trouble working in a form that has a white background - too much white, too dazzling. on the other hand, i have great difficulty reading white - bright - text on a dark background. so i - and my users - get light blue or green backgrounds on all my forms - neutral, not bright - with black or dark blue text. nobody has complained of eye strain so far, last 12 years.

the point, though, is that different users will have different preferences, depending on what is easiest on their own eyes. for some that will be light on dark, and for some it will be dark on light, with all sorts of variations. if you have a target group of users, rather than the general public, then i agree with whoever suggested earlier that those users' feedback will be the most useful to you.

It is always very difficult to please everyone, the simpler can become not very pleasant and vice versa.
I always tried to leave my layout as smooth as possible, not overloading aggressive colors, the correct thing is always to leave the perfect combination. where aesthetics do not tire the end user.

Thank you all

I had a client that really wanted a white on black like you have. I often prefer it myself: I like the look and it tends to be a bit easier on the eyes if you work long hours with the same program day in-day out. He did some study and polls and determine that there's (apparently) quite a bit more people that prefer a standard white background instead of a dark theme, and those that prefer the darker theme can easily enough go either way (whereas those that prefer the lighter themes tend to have a lot of trouble with the dark), and therefore the lighter theme was much safer (regardless of the client's research and final decision, this is something I personally agree with as well).

Anyway light/dark debate aside, I really like the way it looks. I'm beyond horrible myself at coming up with aesthetically pleasing designs (functional, sure, but not generally nice-looking), and am often highly impressed with what people are able to do with Access. This would look very nice in a light theme as well. It has a very nicely polished feel, completely un-cluttered, easy to glance-and-understand with a great balance of subtle color changes for various UI components.

Great work

In a general sense I like it Frank. Nice contrast. Easy to read. Won't strain the eyes over a long period of time. Good job.

Thanks, Daniel. Some people say my use of multiple colored fonts makes it look too busy like a Christmas tree. In most places, I generally use green fonts for money, red for visual alerts, larger font sizes and yellow to emphasize key elements and for navigational focus. In datasheet columns I center certain values to make it easier to read.

I have been trying to make certain data values that I display in red fonts, like elapsed days ("Dias" in Spanish), to BLINK by using a timer in a loop that alternates the field property from visible to hidden, but I am having trouble doing it that way because I am already using another timer for something else.

Personally I agree with your 'too busy' comment.
I find forms easier to read when they have a clean design and I think multiple colours on a black background is distracting.
I think if you add a blinking font as well it really will be OTT.

However that's just my opinion...which you are free to ignore.
