Closes #14283

Description of the Change

This makes the "pane markers" of the One themes have 2 different states:

State Screenshot
An "active" state -> grey marker 1
A "active + focused" state -> blue bar 2

This follows a similar pattern used in the tree-view, where the active file is grey, but turns blue when also focused.


Alternate Designs

Only show the marker when a pane has focus, but it might be nice to see, which of the panes is the active one. For example when opening a new file, you know where it will be opened.

Possible Drawbacks

Some users might prefer to keep the marker blue all the time.

Verification Process

  1. Open a file
  2. Open another file in split mode
  3. Click between tree-view and the files and observe the marker switching between grey and blue
