SSIS - Dark color scheme, white rowcount in Data Flow

    When I first installed Visual Studio, I selected to use the Dark colour schema. This always worked wonders for me, until this morning I actually noticed that while running a package, the background of the package (data flow view) was white, and the row-count of the rows processed was also in white. This basically means you won't be able to keep track of what SSIS is working on/with:

    Luckily, the solution is relatively easy. Click on "Tools" -> "Options" in the Visual Studio menu. In "Environment" -> "General settings", change the color theme from dark to light using the drop-down list:

    You now ought to be able to see the same screen, but the text of the row count will be black. Now repeat the same steps, and set the color scheme back to dark. This time, you will see your component on a black background, just as you always intended:
