How to set a background color to view

Hi All,
          i creared a view with 2 textboxes and a button.These elements are in TransparentContainer.I set the background color to the TransparentContainer.By setting color to the TransparentContainer it is comming at the center and the 4 sides of it is displaying in the normal background color of the browser
i didnt find any color options for the view called RootUIElementContainer.the width and height of the view are setted to the browser means 1024*768.
Just like sap editor which we get by the link i want to get my view .....
I want to set color to this RootUIElementContainer element which effect the whole view...not the containers or groups which i add under this RootUIElementContainer

hi Padma,
For changing the background colour you will have to make the change in the theme.
You can download the theme editor plugin for eclipse from SDN. With this plugin, you can make changes to the default themes , save as a new theme
Or if you are using portal, then goto system administrator, theme editor, select SAP Streamline and change the color in Screen areas -> application, then save the theme with different name.
Best regards,

  • How to set the Background Color of a Text Field in a Tabular Report.

    I tried to set the Background Color of a Text Field in a Tabular Report.
    But I was not able to change this colur.
    In the report attributes --> column attributes
    I tried already:
    1. Column Formating -- >CSS Style (bgcolor: red)
    2. Tabular Form Element --> Element Attributes (bgcolor: red)
    but nothing worked.
    Can anybody help me?
    I Use Oracle Apex 2.2.1 on 10gR2
    thank you in advance.

    in "Report Attributes" select the column to move to the "Column Attributes" page. In the "Element Attributes" field under the "Tabular Form Element" region enter
    I will also check if there is a way to do this via the template and post here again
    in your template definition, above the template, enter the following:
    < STYLE TYPE="text/css" >
    .class INPUT {background-color:red;}
    < /STYLE >
    (remove the spaces after the < and before the >)
    change "class" to the class that the template is calling
    (I'm using theme 9, the table has: class="t9GCCReportsStyle1" so I would enter t9GCCReportsStyle1)
    A side-effect of using this second version is that ALL input types will have a red background color--checkboxes, input boxes, etc.

    Instead of extending JCheckBox, extend JPanel... put a checkbox in it. (border layout center).
    Or better yet, don't extend any gui component. This keeps things very clean. Don't extend a gui component unless you have no other choice.
    private class MyCellRenderer implements TableCellRenderer {
        private JPanel    _panel = null;
        private JCheckBox _checkBox = null;
        public MyCellRenderer() {
            //  Create & configure the gui components we need
            _panel = new JPanel( new BorderLayout() );
            _checkBox = new JCheckBox();
            _checkBox.setHorizontalAlignment( SwingConstants.CENTER );
            // Layout the gui
            _panel.add( _checkBox, BorderLayout.CENTER );

  • How do I set the background color of a page_item?

    I've been pasting "background-color:#5CD65C" in a number of places, like "HTML Table Cell Attributes" under the Label and the Element tabs, but get no results. Can anyone tell me how to set the background color of a cell, please?

    Hi Doug,
    Dynamic Actions is an alternative also, especially if it is conditional.
    Action Set Style
    Fire When Event Result Is True
    Style Name background-color
    Value #5CD65C
    Selection Type DOM Object
    DOM Object your item name
    Set your Condition Type and you have it.

  • Can I invoke a SubVI in an event? and how do I set the background color of a pipe to #0000ff?

    When I click an image or a glass pipe(which belongs to Industry/Chesmitry category in palette), I want a SubVI to be invoked.
    The purpose is to fetch an OPC-UA data from a web service and to write to it via the service.
    We are building an HMI solution which displays an interactive water plant diagram.
    When users click pipes and motors in the diagram, clicked devices should be turned on and off and change their animations or colors accordingly.
    OPC-UA is for communication with devices.
    I couldn't even set the background color of a pipe to "#0000ff", but setting it to "Red" or "Blue" was possible, and I don't know how to invoke SubVIs in event scripts.
    The documentations in are confusing and lack depth.
    Even silverlight references are confusing.
    How do I do all of these?

    Hi iCat,
    Can you provide some more information about your current implementation so that we can help to answer your questions. Some questions I have for you are:
    Are you creating this project in the NI LabVIEW Web UI Builder or in LabVIEW?
    How are you publishing your webservice? Is this also in LabVIEW?
    How is your webservice interacting with an OPC-UA server?
    How is the certification set up with OPC-UA so that you can communicate between the server and the client?

  • How to set a background image to fill the entire screen on any device in a spark mobile application

    I started developing a mobile application with Flex.
    I'm trying to set a background image to fill the whole screen. I've been stucked at this point for days now. I tried everything and no solution seems to work for me.
    I'm using a TabbedViewNavigatorApplication and i need to set some background images on views.
    I need my image to fill the entire screen on any device. i don't need to mantain image aspect ratio,  just need it to be fullscreen. This seemed to work when setting a custom skin on the TabbedViewNavigatorApplication, however this blocked all my views for some reason and all components contained in view became invisible.
    Can you please tell me how can i achieve this?
    Kind regards,

    Basically you need a larger image which can accommodate any device. The trick is to show only what each device can display, so therefore some clipping will occur based on device. Have something centered and towards margins have a  gradient or just plane colors that way the stuff in the middle will be visible on every device while nobody will care if you are clipping from the color fill.

  • Setting JScrollPane background color.

    Does anybody know how to set what color appears in the background of a JScrollPane when the Component in the pane is smaller than the pane itself?
    In particular, I have a JTable in a JScrollPane, and when the pane is bigger than the table, the gray default background of the viewport looks weird behind the white background of the table.
    MyScrollPane.setBackground() doesn't do it, neither does MyScrollPane.getViewport().setBackground().
    Thanks in advance,

    This might explain some things, hope it helps...
    it's a cut and paste from the JScrollpane source....
    A common operation to want to do is to set the background color that will be used if the main viewport view is smaller than the viewport, or is not opaque. This can be accomplished by setting the background color
    of the viewport, via scrollPane.getViewport().setBackground().The reason for setting the color of the viewport and not the scrollpane is that by default JViewport is opaque which, among other things, means it will completely fill in its background using its background color. Therefore when <code>JScrollPane</code> draws its background the viewport will usually draw over it.

  • Dynamically Set Subreport Background Color to the Same Value as Main Report Background Color

    I have a report that contains a subreport.  The main report has groupings in it.  I am dynamically setting the background color of the group rows based on an expression.  That part is working fine.  The problem that I am having is that
    I don't know how to get the subreport to "inherit" the background color of the grouping that holds it.
    Basically, I have different row shadings on my report differentiating the groupings except for the rows where the subreport shows.
    How do I go about setting the subreport background color to equal it's contaiing grouping's background color?  Thanks in advance for any and all assistance provided.

    The parameter method given by gpshukla will send the info to the subreport, but you don't need the color parameter in the main report, only the subreport. The trick is in setting the value of that parameter.
    Right-click the cell with the embedded subreport, you can select subreport properties.
    Select Parameters and add a parameter.
    The name column is the name of the parameter in the subreport (color) and value is the value to set it to.
    Set name to "color" (no quotes).
    Set Value to the same expression used to set the background color for the row.
    In the subreport, click the design surface to select the report (not header or footer).
    In the properties pane, select background color and choose expression from the dropdown.
    Type =Parameters!color.Value into the expression builder.
    This will work assuming that background color in the main report row will not change without also refreshing the subreport.

  • How to change the background color of a cell in datagrid using flex3

    i want to change the background color of a can i achieve this.....and also i want to know how a spacing cane be done between cells in a datagrid...plzzz help me???

    The only way I can see to do this is to use an item renderer for your cells.  This is really scruffy and would need tyding up, and maybe with a little more time could do better or someone else may have an idea but none the less this works.
    Define a custom component as below;
    This has logic to see what the value of the data is proveided by the dataprovider for the row, and if it matches the conditions in this case is equal to 5 sets the background color.
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <mx:Canvas xmlns:mx="" width="88" height="26" dataChange="doColor()" borderColor="#000000" borderStyle="solid"
                private function doColor():void {
                    if (data.value == 5) {
                        setStyle('backgroundColor', 0xcccccc);
                    } else {
                        setStyle('backgroundColor', 0xffffff);
    Now just apply the item renderer in the datagrid and that will do it.
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <mx:Application xmlns:mx="" layout="absolute"  xmlns:ns1="*">
                import mx.collections.ArrayCollection;
                private var ac:ArrayCollection = new ArrayCollection([
                    {value : 1},

  • UITableView: set different background colors for header and the table

    I would like to set my background color for my UITableView to white and set my tableViewHeader backgroundColor to grayColor similar to the facebook app. When I bounce scroll my table so that you can see above the header, then currently it is white above the header view. I want that to be brown instead.
    In the facebook app, above the headerview, it is a blue color and below the table is a white color. If i try and set the UITableView backgroundColor to brown, then the top will be brown, but so will the bottom. Additionally, all of the unset cells will have a brown background instead of white.
    Any help with this?
