Cascading Style Sheets

To define the look and feel of the UI, modify the cascading style sheets (CSS) files. Characteristics such as fonts and font weights, background colors, and link colors are specified in the CSS files. You must choose the appropriate .css file for your browser in order to customize the look and feel on the User Interface.

In the appropriate .css file, change the background-color attribute. Examples:

.button-content-enabled { background-color:red; }
button-link:link, a.button-link:visited { color: #000;
background-color: red;
text-decoration: none; }

A number of browser-based CSS files are installed with Access Manager in the following directory:
