It's good that you are using "generic-dark" as that is the only valid value besides "default" that you could use.
Pages 26-27 of the component reference guide list all the possible color values you can access for your theme's dialogs.
I don't see text/title color for dialogs on pages 26-27, do you? Unless I missed something.
The docs have been a little flaky in the past when it comes to themes, which is why I'm asking.
The only COLOR attributes for themes are there. You can try those and see if they work on dialog screens. If not, then you're just plain out of luck.
Actually, there have been a number of undocumented theme attributes discussed/uncovered in this forum. It's also not uncommon at all for there to be typos in the documentation, either (particularly with the theme attributes). I'm also quite interested in how to change the color of the text on the "generic-dark" dialogs, as it's not obvious in the documentation, nor is it realistic for us to try every single possible theme attribute to see if any affect it. I've abandoned using it in a couple of my channels for this very reason.
