CSS in Analytic Application (SAC)
As an application designer, from release 2020.20 (or Q4 2020) we can now define multiple CSS class styles either as a global default or per widget! This is amazing news!
Globally, it became possible to go to editing the css from the general canvas (Application Level CSS):
It is quite convenient that the css editor itself has a convenient help: when you select a visualization element, a list of available css classes of this component appears (supported class names and properties):
It’s simple with separate classes:
About standard component classes – you can only refer with a user define class name as the first part of selector:
As you can see hover is also supported.
Binding to the class name is defined in the styling menu of the component:
Of course, now you can change the css class from scripts:
CSS is stored together with the application or together with the application theme (not as in a lumira designer as a separate file). Some of the existing theme settings can be overwritten.
Unfortunately, not all css properties are currently supported:
We hope that this is only the first step and in the future SAC Analytics Applications will be even more customized in terms of the capabilities of the CSS!
