  • How to make button background color chnage

    In my custom application having 12 buttons, out of  12 buttons one button should look totally differance than other buttons like button background color to red color.
    we found two solution even though  those are not adopted to my solution
    1. CSS technic for application, its changing whole application insted of one button inside a iview.
    2. client is not happy with  button design  like STANDARD/EMPHASIZED/PREVIOUS/NEXT

    You can also use the imageAlt, imageFirst,imageSource properties of the image to enhance the button.
    and to change the background you can change the portal theme.

  • Wrong command button background color on web

    We have a problem with background color of command button.
    If we set background color to lime, only upper line of button is in lime color. Rest of the button is in default color.
    This happens when user runs application on web (standalone server and embedded).
    In jdeveloper button is in correct color (whole button in lime color).
    What could be the problem?

    On debugging, i found that the commandButton is using background-image to show the silver/grey background.
    So, in order to modify it to other background color, you have set the background-image as none as follows:
    <af:commandButton text="commandButton 1" id="cb1"
    inlineStyle="background-color:red; background-image:none"/>

  • Why does JButton background color change when  clicking ?

    I have defined :
    JButton mybutton = new JButton(Icon xxx) ;
    with no associated text and I set both foreground and background colors to black, and an empty border.
    This is because the background color of the container which contents this button is also black and I want to see only the button icon.
    When I click on the icon , the button background color becomes grey. How can I change this to make it remains black ?
    Thanks a lot.

    Well, the color changes because that is how the look and feel is defined,
    presumably to give better feedback to the user that she has clicked the
    If you don't want this, you could try using a different L&F which doesn't do this.
    Alternatively, If you've only got the one button, you could just do
        UIManager.put( "Button.select", Color.BLACK );If you have multiple buttons, and you want the other buttons to behave
    normally, you can extend the one button and have it change the color
    while it is pressed, e.g.,
    import java.awt.*;
    import java.io.IOException;
    import java.net.URL;
    import javax.swing.*;
    public class ButtonSelect extends JFrame {
         public ButtonSelect() throws IOException {
              JPanel panel = new JPanel();
              panel.add( new JButton( "Normal" ) );
              Image img = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getImage( new URL("http://www.google.com/intl/en/images/logo.gif" ) );
              ImageIcon ii = new ImageIcon( img );
              JButton b = new JButton( ii ) {
                   static final private String KEY = "Button.select";
                   public void paint( Graphics g ) {
                        Color save = null;
                        if ( getModel().isArmed() && getModel().isPressed() ) {
                             save = UIManager.getColor( KEY );
                             UIManager.put( KEY, Color.WHITE );
                        super.paint( g );
                        if ( save != null )
                             UIManager.put( KEY, save );
              b.setForeground( Color.WHITE );
              b.setBackground( Color.WHITE );
              b.setFocusPainted( false );
              panel.add( b );
              getContentPane().add( panel );
              setVisible( true );

  • Want to change button background using UIManager for WindowsLookAndFeel

  • Button background fill "Linear - to top" not showing after save.

    I've made the proper edits to make these buttons look very "cool" having the background filled to a gradient look which is called "Linear to top", but once I save this form and open the PDF the button color is solid rather then gradient or "linear to top"
    Any explination?

    If you have done the changes to your your button background color at the design time, it should retain the changes anywhere you open it.
    If you have done the changes to your button background color through Script, then you may need set the Save changes automatically.
    If your issue is not resolved, by changing the settings, you can post the form to [email protected], so I can have a look..

  • Setting a default background color

    Hi All,

    way to achieve this?

    You can set using UIManager of the Look and Feel.
    UIManger.put("Button.background", Color.blue);
    will set the color of all the JButtons to blue. Like that you can change for all the components you need.

  • Set background color for conditional text fields by click of button.

    I am new to apex, the scenario is when i click on a button i.e. Save, it shoulld compare 2 fields P1 and P2 which are text fields.
    If the value of P1 is greaterthan P2 then the whole P1 text field background color should change to "Red" otherwise in any other condition the P1 field should be "Green" color.
    In which section the color function should be called on the Save button?
    On the page in the HTML Header section i have added the below code but the background color is not getting set.
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function fncChangeColor()
    var num1 = $v('P1');
    var num2 = $v('P2');
    if ( num1 > num2 ) {
    document.getElementById("P1").style.background = "RED";
    else {
    document.getElementById("P1").style.background = "GREEN";
    Can any one help me in moving ahead with this scenario with a detailed information.

    Call function on button URL target
    javascript:fncChangeColor()If button should submit page, then I think you do not need color field to green.
    Just change to run submit function.
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function fncChangeColor(){
    var num1 = $v('P1');
    var num2 = $v('P2');
    if ( num1 > num2 ) {
      $x("P1").style.background = "RED";
      return false;

  • Spry vertical menu button shows background color instead of image in preview

    Hello All, I'm a newbie (to the forum and Dreamweaver) so my apologies if my question is not in good form.  I've searched for this issue but cannot seem to find the exact problem I have. 
    I've created a website (my first) and used the spry menu bar.  It works well using the default blue and grey colors for button and hover.  However, I decided I want to spruce it up a little and change the buttons to use a background image (rainbow pattern) instead of background color.  I internet researched this for some time and watched all the youtube videos people have posted for this process and editing the spry vertical menu bar CSS.  Using the .a and hover lines from the CSS, I was able to add my background .jpg image file.  In the design view, the button look exactly how I want them to.  However, when I attempt to preview in IE, Chrome, or FF, the buttons still have the default colors and no image.  I've gone back and deleted the default blue and grey, but then the preview just shows dark grey and white for the buttoms.  is there something that I am overlooking that would cause the background color to show instead of the image I have attached to the buttons.  I can't figure out why it looks right in DW but not in preview.
    BTW, I'm editing a template file and all the pages are updated with the new image buttons, but none of the pages show correctly in preview. 

    Point taken :-)
    This is my spry vertical css code.  No sub-menus.

    border: 1px solid #CCC;

  • LinkBar: how to set a selected button's background color?

    I was able to set the text color of a selected LinkBar button by "disabledColor" style of LinkBar. Accordingly, I expect to set the background color of the selected button by "backgroundDisabledColor" style, however, it didn't work; and except "backgroundDisabledColor", I didn't see any other style that could possibly achieve this. Please help. Thanks.

    Solved this myself by writing a programmatic skin and set it to LinkButton's disabledSkin.
