Make icon for 'partially succeeded' orange

description

Hi, Jim Liddell (original author of Team Build Screen) here. Although I don't use TFS day-to-day anymore, and I'm not actively involved in maintaining this project, I like to check in every now and again just to see how things are going. I'm absolutely thrilled that this is still an active and maintained project.

Just spotted one little thing in your screenshots that I would like to see addressed if I were still working on this. All the original icons and colours were based on the icons from TFS itself, and were designed such that the icons always corresponded with the background colour of their panel. I see that since then, a 'partially succeeded' build will show the number of failed tests for the icon, with an orange background. That's great functionality, but I feel the mismatch between the colour scheme of the icon (red) and the background of the panel (orange) looks out of place and lacks polish. It should be fairly straight forward to change the icon to match the orange colour of the tile. The number of failed tests also doesn't quite look centred within the icon.

Keep up the great work guys - looking good.

I tried to make the icon orange as well, but I didn't like the look of it together with the failed tests number. Having white font color on orange background wasn't visible enough, and changing font color to something darker looked out of place. So I stayed with the red background for the icon, and given the relatively small area of the panel that the icon covers, I haven't had anyone fail to see the status.

Regarding the alignment of the number, I think it's centered. But for some numbers it just doesn't look that way. I think. =)
