Change background color of default 2010 look?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi, I like the default look of the 2010 v4.master.  I was just wondering if it was possible to change just the background color from white to another color (gray in my case)?  Thats really the only change i would like to make.  Thanks!

Is it possible to change the title bar background and the font style on default template?



Is there any way to change the default top link /title bar picture and the fonts of the title without breaking anything in the layout/structure?

I have changed the theme to Obsedian and I would also like to change the picture of the title bar of this theme and also the font/style of the title, top link bar, menus..etc. Is there a way to do this?

Please note: I am using WSS 3.0 and I am not the Administrator of the sharepoint. I am only the site admin of some sites on this sharepoint. I can do some basic customization using SPD.

Basically, what I am trying to do is that I want to set up a sharepoint site, however I want to make it NOT look like a sharepoint site.Well I know this is possible, but for my case it might be just partially possible due to the limitation that I am not the Site collection admin and hence I do not have direct access to the server itself.

What I want is to hide most of the sharepoint links/menus/bars, etc and use my own buttons/hyperlinks etc .. for user to navigate on the sites.

Thanks in advance for your help/advices.

change TD background/foreground color problem.

I have some javascript that is suppose to change the color of a table TD. the CSS file has an entry like this .tdcommand {} HTML TD is like <td colspan="2" height="162" valign="top" class="tdcommand"> if i put a background-color:red or whatever in the CSS file, the color is shown correctly. If i change it via a script it doesnt seem to have any impact. using the alert() to post info, i've found its entering my function correctly and getting the correct info. the important part of the function is thisfor (var i = 0; i < document.styleSheets[0][CSSRules].length; i++) { if (document.styleSheets[0][CSSRules][i].selectorText == obj) { document.styleSheets[0][CSSRules][i].style[prop] = color document.getElementById("opt_" + option).innerHTML = "'" + color + "'" } }   as i said, using the alert() i can validate that its finding the class ok (obj = .tdcommand) and the property is correct (background-color) and the innerHTML update is working fine. I use this same function to set other things, such as text color and highlighting of span's without any problem. what am i missing?   Justin

How to change background or border brush color of an element while it has template in xaml?

HTML Editor: Change Edit Panel Background Color

I've created a custom editor from the default AJAX HTMLEditor control to limit the toolbar buttons, etc. But I can't see how to set the background color of the text area in design mode. I'd like to set the background color to something other than white, because with my app most users will want to use white as their text color. White text on a white background is no bueno. The editor has ForeColor and BackColor properties, but these values don't control the text area. I tried creating custom css styles based on Editor.css, but all I end up with is an HTMLEditor without a border. Am I approaching this wrong? Any suggestions?

Change Background Color of WorkflowDesigner.View

The View of a WorkflowDesigner is a derivative of UIElement. Is there a way to change the background color of a UIElement (or WorkflowDesigner View)?

I've searched through documentation and intellisense and couldn't find a way to do this.

The reason I ask is the background for the runtime view of a Workflow is White, which does not fit the theme of my application.

Setting textbox background-color changes the default border



I've got a textbox that I'm temporarily applying a class to to give it white text on a white background.  For some reason when I apply that class, the border style changes from the default single, gray, flat border to an inset, 2px, gray border. I messed around with different combinations of styles and colors and it seems as though setting any background-color on the textbox causes the border to change. Where does the default border style come from and why is it changing?

Can I change the default color of a calendar event?

I have a couple calendars that will be using the overlay functionality in 2010, and chosing colors for the overlays is no problem.  However the main calendar defaults to green, and then when you open any of the overlay calendars their default color is green on their calendar but different on the main version.  Is there a way I can change the default so that either the main calendar doesn't show green (then each overlay owner wouldn't be confused), or to change the seperate overlay calendars to have their default match the selected overlay color?
