without borders   


If you have a table with some rows and columns, and set the background color on the <tr>´s like this:

table.mytable tr

Then you can see the lines that seperates the <tr>´s and <td>´s. Its like the borders that define the tablestructure still has its original color (or is transparent). And it looks quite ugly. How do you avoid this? Is there a way in CSS to make these borders 0 pixels wide?

I know that I can just put the background color on the table instead, but that is not a possible solution in my case.

Thanks alot :)

Setting Managed MetaData default values on site creation

I am working on a project where the requirement is to have specific document content types.  I have therefore create a site columns feature which creates all my columns, I have a Site Contentypes feature which creates all my content type and I have list templates based on my content types.  I also have created a couple of Site definition features which create specific list instance based on my list template As part of my content types I have created a few Managed Metadata fields which I wanted to set defaults for on the creation of my sites.  I have therefore created a feature which is right at the end of the WebFeatures section in my ONET.xml.  This features enumerates through all lists, looking for specific column names(managed metadata columns) and looks to set these to specific values.  The code to set the default value on the field is: TaxonomyField documentCategoryField = (TaxonomyField)library.Fields["Document Category"]; if (documentCategoryTerm != null) { documentCategoryField.DefaultValue = documentLibraryDefault.ToString(); documentCategoryField.Update();                                                     }                         &n

What lists and what column types allow for setting "column default value settings"

There is a new setting for lists in 2010 called "Column default value settings". What lists does this setting apply to (I think just lists with a base template of Document Library)? And for what column types is it available? It was available on a "Single line of text" column but not a lookup column. Thanks in advance!

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

Setting textbox background-color changes the default border

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


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?

Table rendering Bug: Setting Background color for SSRS report (RDLC)



I am facing the issue while trying to create a Report Definition Language Client-side (RDLC) report. I want to set background color to the textbox (used in table) depending on the value.

Setting default localization



I ever thought that I can set a default localization if the users one (which is set in the browser) isn't available.

I've implemented my localresource files for localization. The start.aspx.resx contains all texts and elements for German use and the start.aspx.en.resx for English users. When I switch the language in the browser settings from German to English everything works fine and the english text is displayed. But when I switch to an other language which is not German or English, it takes defaulty the german resource files.

I've set

UICulture="auto:en-US" Culture="auto:en-US"

as well, but it didn't assume the .en resource file automatically. (For example when I enter the website and switch the browser language to French or Italian it should take the english resource files.)

Thanks and regards,

Setting webpage/masterpage background...image?


I want to have the background of my masterpage (the master page for all of my .aspx pages) have a sort of gradient.  I imagine the only way I can do that is with an image.  Or maybe even some other design, but I want to move away from the "solid color" background.

Is the easiest way to do this just to make an image and set that as the background?  What image size should I make it, because some users could possibly have the normal aspect ratio, or maybe a widescreen?  What should I make it like so that it looks good on all computers?

Thanks in advance. :) 

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.
