SharePoint 2010 Base CSS Classes

This will be the first of many SharePoint 2010 posts. I will be focusing on a few of the main CSS classes used for SharePoint 2010 Public Beta. As the product becomes more final there might be some changes to the class names but I will be sure to create a new post if that happens. This will be quite a lengthy but it should be helpful. The default CSS given below are just highlights of the full CSS attributes for that class.

I will be using a basic team site as my base for the screenshots.

Thanks a lot for what you have done here! You saved me lot of time to investigate those basic CSS classes myself. One thing I noticed is that I had to modify ".ms-browseTab.ms-cui-tt-s > a.ms-cui-tt-a" instead of ".ms-cui-tt-s > .ms-cui-tt-a" in order to change the color of Browse button.

ChrisBaird said...

This may be my CSS newbishness, but how do I use the styles where you have used the greater than ( > ) symbol? How should this appear in a style sheet? Left navigation example is where I'm starting.

Erik Swenson said...

Chris this is called a "descendant selector"

Check out: http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/selector.html and scroll down to section 5.6.

"A child selector matches when an element is the child of some element. A child selector is made up of two or more selectors separated by ">".

Example(s):

The following rule sets the style of all P elements that are children of BODY:

body > P { line-height: 1.3 }
"
Hope that helps!

ChrisBaird said...

It does -- thanks for explaining.

Very useful information here Eric, I've been using this page as a reference all day!

On a related note, has anyone managed to remove the 1px border around the search input box? I've traced & modified the styles (even the IE8 dev tools says the border is now 'none') but they are still there...

It almost seems like some 'Microsoft Magic' is going on here 'cos the 1px #e3e3e3 border seems to be coming from *nowhere*...it's quite scary actually!

Erik Swenson said...

Gordon, try using the "!important" tag to remove the border:

.s4-search input.ms-sbplain{
border: none !important;
}

Gordon said...

Many thanks Erik, that worked brilliantly!

Rzimgd said...

Just wondering, is there a unique css id or class for the first tab in the global navigation? I'm trying to find a way to remove the link to the root from the nav, and was hoping I could just hide it using css...

Erik Swenson said...

Rzimgd,

Since SharePoint 2010 uses UL/LI nodes there is no unique id or class for the first node. Therefore you have two options: The first is to modify the master page and change the delegate control setting of ShowStartingNode="True" to "False".

The other option is to change the simple rendering of the control to the old version that uses tables. See the second half of my post here: http://erikswenson.blogspot.com/2010/01/style-individual-navigation-items-for.html

Once you have done that to hide the first node see the following post: http://erikswenson.blogspot.com/2009/01/hide-1-tab-in-top-navigation-home.html

I hope that helps. I would recommend the first option.

Rzimgd said...

Hi Erik,

Thanks for the response. I tried both methods, but when I use them, it seems to disable the flyouts by moving the sub-links into the first level of the navigation. Any ideas?

Hey Eric. Fantastic, I could just complete branding one of my site using your blog. It was very very informative. Would definitely refer this in my <a href="http://blog.answermyquery.com>Blog </a>. Thanks again-Kranthi reddy

When viewing a list item, how do we we set the ribbon to default Browse mode instead of default to Edit mode. It is irritating to see the item details in view mode all the time and then click Browse to remove it.

Rod said...

hi there

I have been trying to chance the go image on the search control with my custom image. I tried to override this class "“.s4-search .ms-searchimage” but i had no success as yet. Would mind giving me a hand on that. I would really appreciate it. I look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks

Regards

Rodolfo

Erik Swenson said...

Rodolfo,

To change the search image via just CSS use the following approach in this blog post

http://erikswenson.blogspot.com/2010/01/change-sharepoint-search-icon-with-just.html

And the CSS below.

.ms-sbgo {
background-color: transparent;
border: none;
background-image: url('/_layouts/images/custom/search.gif') !important;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: right center;
width: 19px;
height: 19px;
position: relative;
left: -1px;
}

.s4-search .srch-gosearchimg{
visibility: hidden;
width: 19px;
height: 19px;
}

Rod said...

Hi Erick

Many thanks dude great trick!!. Just one more question. How about putting a border around the search text box. Again many thanks for your great help!

Regards

Rodolfo

Anonymous said...

And where do i find this css? I cant find it anywhere, where do i have to search for the file. Also i'm interested to change the IN the search form. Does anybody know how i can change the text in the search form. But nut the Search center Form. I think on the form which is on every website, on top right side.

Mandy said...

This is amazingly helpful! My company is getting ready to upgrade to 2010 and I'm the admin for a lot of 2007 sites that I've branded with custom backgrounds, etc. I'm delighted to see how easy it is to keep my gradient backgrounds on SharePoint pages. Thanks so much for the list!

Anonymous said...

I'm amazed at how difficult they've made some basic things, like having one consistent link color and not having links in the same color as body text...

Please help.

Erik Swenson said...

Dale,
More than likely you are modifying the wrong corev4.css file. There are two of them in the Styles Directory. One in the root of that folder and another one in a folder called themable. Try changing both of them and see if that makes a difference.

Any idea how to change the color and.width of the border between the left nav and the body ? The line is very faint. Just want to make it a little thicker and darker ? ( quick links )

Erik Swenson said...

Pancho:
Here is the base class and properties that make up the quick launch lines.

body #s4-leftpanel-content{
border:1px solid #dbddde;
border-right-width:1px;
border-bottom-width:1px;
}

If you want to make the line more bold try something like this:

body #s4-leftpanel-content{
border:1px solid #000;
border-right-width:3px;
border-bottom-width:3px;
}

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the great post! I am new to sharepoint and have a question for you that I cant seem to figure out. I have a list webpart in the body of my sharepoint page with hyperlinks in it. I am looking for a way for the color of the hyperlinks to change to a darker color when I hover over them instead of just being underline.

Thank you for any help!

-Bryan

I am trying to brand SharePoint 2010 by extending the left navigation to 100% when I tried setting the height to 100% in body #s4-leftpanel however it didn't work.

Please advise

In SharePoint 2010, I am using a page viewer web part with a link to a swf file. In the top navigation, we have several tabs across with drop-down lists that appear behind the swf file. Do you know how to fix?

nice work! you used an old version of the fgimg.png though ;)

Erik Swenson said...

@Tjassens. At the time of writting this post almost two years ago it was the latest version :). In my branding book that I am currently writting I have about 100 pages dedicated within my laster chapter with an updated CSS reference guide. I hope that you buy my book!

Great work. Question: if you apply a border to web parts via .s4-wpcell, the user cannot turn the border off in web part chrome. Is there a workaround?

Adrian Murphy said...

Excellent article. A lot of hard work.

But it's well worth reading this article too - as it's extremely valuable:

Greeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaat Thank you. really helpful.

How do I change the white background. I want a different background. The white backdrop.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for your info... helpful. I am having an issue. I am "bleaching" out the sharepoint interface so I can sort of rebuild from the ground-up. I have a sliver of color to the left of the image that I cannot seem to set to white. I've tried overriding the color: on just about every class I can locate in SPD. You sepak in great detail on the ribbon row, but not so much on the top-header band where the logo lives. Any ideas where I am going wrong? Do you have moire detail about the logo area?

Hi Erik,

Love your post. I have a question though. This is with regards to WelcomeMenu. How can we change the color of the arrow for this class ".ms-viewselector-arrow"

I wanted to change the color of the down-arrow for the name.

Thanks,
Ricky

The title logo must be given in properly for a better design. All those themes are so good and so helpful to me. The format is also well executed. It's all because of the way of explanation. Toronto seo company are always open to help all who would prefers to know better optimizing techniques.
