Style

From NSB App Studio
Jump to: navigation, search

AppStudio programs run within a special version of a web browser. As a result, they can inherit a lot of the properties of the environment they run in. You can access these properties from within your app, either in code or in the style property in the Properties Window.

Naming Convention

There are two naming conventions for style which are made up of more than one word.

  • CSS: words are all lower case, separated by dashes. Example: border-bottom-style
  • JavaScript: words are combined into one string. First word is all lower case. Each subsequent word starts with a capital letter. Example: borderBottomStyle

It is not a complete list: there are additional items in the full HTML documentation. In addition, some browsers may have additional members not shown here.

To set style properties for a Control, Form or the Project, edit the style property in the Properties Window using the CSS style. If you are setting more than one style, separate using semicolons. All styles must be on a single line.

  border-bottom-color:red; border-top-color:blue;

To set style properties in your code, use the JavaScript form:

  Button1.style.borderBottomColor = "red"
  Button1.style.borderTopColor = "blue"
