In principle, yes. But colors in controls can not be changed, they are part of the current theme.
you must not use System Theme Color locate at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Colors
as i say there are 2 API Function

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/api/winuser/nf-winuser-getsyscolor
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/api/winuser/nf-winuser-setsyscolors

it work for all Apps but only as long as User is login. after re-login OS load default so Registry is not change !

The only alternative would be 100% owner-drawn control like the Windows apps use.
i agree ... lot of work

when using Ownerdraw you still can react on visual Style / Effekt and paint what you want.

Unfortunately it will only work on Windows 10 because only here Microsoft added the necessary functions.

I'll be glad for the dark TC GUI, I used dark GUI in Windows10 so I will have a unified style.

Hope to see beta build for Dark Mode. Of cause this feature is only available on Windows 10

I'm also looking forward to the Dark Mode because I use Dark Mode for Windows 10 1903 already. TC in Dark Mode would be very nice. :)

Yes it is - I have been using it in dark mode for the last few weeks to find remaining errors, and it works well so far.
