Style Templates

The standard styling of an application is timeless and looks like one of the following.

The standard view:
Standard menu

The corporation view:
Corporation menu

But the standard styling is not always what you want because you have some special colors in mind. It's absolutely no problem to apply your own style to an application. It's an easy task if you use one of our templates and it's a little bit complex if you do it on your own with pure CSS. But if you have some CSS skills, it's also super easy.

If you want to use our style templates, do following:

  1. Download the template archive
  2. Extract the archive into the WebContent folder of your application, e.g. <VisionX_dir>/rad/apps/vxdemo/WebContent
    (be careful because the existing application.css will be replaced)
  3. Choose the right application style

Our application styles use a template mechanism and the template archive contains different files:

  • application_theme.css
    This file is the theme definition and contains the whole CSS style definitions which are based on variables. You don't have to change this file.
  • theme-orange.css
    This file uses the theme definition (application_theme.css) and sets some variables to show orange colors.
  • theme-blue.css
    This file uses the theme definition (application_theme.css) and sets some variables to show blue colors.
  • theme-red.css
    This file uses the theme definition (application_theme.css) and sets some variables to show red colors.
  • theme-black.css
    This file uses the theme definition (application_theme.css) and sets some variables to show black colors.
  • application.css
    This is the style file for the application and there you define the style to be used and / or overwrite variables.

Here's an example for the application.css:

}

The orange coloring is used in this file. The result will look like following:

The standard view:
Standard menu

The corporation view:
Corporation menu

If you want different colors, simply use another theme file

/* @import url('theme-orange.css'); */
/* @import url('theme-red.css'); */
/* @import url('theme-black.css'); */
@import url('theme-blue.css'); 

or change one of the documented variables, e.g.

/* 	--theme-primary-color: #f78500; */
--theme-primary-color: #00AA00;

And here's the result:
Standard menu
