Using and Extending CSS to Make Your App Stylin'

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]

The extensible CSS styling support introduced with Eclipse 4 (and available to 3.x apps too) provides support for radically changing an app's appearance using the same techniques seen on the web. In this session we will:

  • describe how widgets layouts map to CSS
  • demonstrate how CSS has been used to change the appearance of several applications;
  • describe how to extend the CSS framework to style your own components;
  • convey best-practices and useful techniques.
