LVGL8.1 how to get dark theme

I’m a bit lost how to get a dark theme working. I’m using lvgl on eps32 (WT32-SC01 3.5inch touchscreen dev board) with platformio in vscode.

It seems like I got lv_conf.h working by adding -DLV_CONF_INCLUDE_SIMPLE in platformio.ini. lv_conf.h is in my src folder.

I thought that setting LV_THEME_DEFAULT_DARK 1 should be enough. However it seems to have no effect at all. It seems that whatever I write in lv_conf.h is not really applied, also changing LV_THEME_DEFAULT_GROW does not do anything. Am I missing something?

Here is my project: https://github.com/peteh/wakeupclock
Here is my lv_conf.h

The best way to check that the right lv_conf.h file is being used to is to add an #error test directive to it under #include <stdint.h>. If there is no error at compile time, your build system is not using it for some reason.

The error is called during compilation: 
src/lv_conf.h:21:2: error: #error test
 #error test 
  ^

Thus the config is loaded but it is not doing what it is supposed to do.

I’ve tried it locally and the option seems to work as expected.

@kisvegabor Do you have any idea what the problem could be?

Please try this in a C file:

#if LV_THEME_DEFAULT_DARK == 1
#error "dark on"
#else
#error "dark off"
#endif

So it seems like it’s on. However, when I see it on the display it’s still white background and blue buttons.

Mhm I am still not getting further.

I’m using the following source:

Could somebody post a minimal example code/project that is supposed to work?
