Can't get BusyColor working for find function

I just installed the Build 810 64-bit donor version and read about the feature to get a different background color in the find dialog when I search through the file list.

For some reason I can't get it to work. Is it correct that this affect the quick search on the find dialog?

First I start the find function and enter a search pattern, e.g. ".txt". Then I press ALT+Y and enter another string in the quick search to filter the find results.
Now I would expect the background color to be changed as long as the filter is active. Am I doing something wrong?

The background color changes correctly when I use the quick filter in the file list window.

Another question: is there a documentation available on the color numbers? I found color numbers in a range from "-16777211" to "536870911" and I have no idea what that means.

Thanks for reading (and answering)

This background color is not too different, just a bit darker, so perhaps try to change the monitor brightness to see the difference.

Alternatively you can use the option in Search dialog menu > Options > Auto hide search parameters on search end.

In the search dialog the color does not change after typing in quick filter field.
The definition in settings is for main window file list only.

I do not think, you need any documentation. Simply use the color selector and the right value will be saved.
