I use a dark theme for my desktop and for Netbeans, but the hint tooltip in NetBeans are displayed with white background and grey foreground.
I really need to change them because it's unreadable with these colors.
I was looking in the Options -> Fonts & Colors but I didn't find anything.

UIManager.put("ToolTip.background", new Color(240,240,240));
