wxWidgets based application is not displayed properly in dark mode on Mac

Hi All,

I am running the application on MacOS in dark mode. But the controls look ugly. With wxTextCtrl, the text is not visible at all.
And wxListCtrl looks fully black. I went through the discussion in https://trac.wxwidgets.org/ticket/18146, and it seems like every control needs to be handled separately.
Honestly, I am not completely sure what exactly needs to be done.
Using wxWidgets 3.1.1 version on Mac Catalina.
Please provide your valuable inputs.

I can't imagine that the display of one of the most basic controls has not been fixed for dark mode yet. Please try again with the latest wxWidgets version from GIT.

If it still happens, please open a new ticket.

Support for macOS Mojave and later dark mode was added in 3.1.3, see the changelog.
