xpages: Theme's and css media types

  05/31/10 10:52 am, by , Categories: Lotus, xpages

This weekend I was trying to embed blueprint in a xpages app.
All went fine, but I ran into 1 problem: How do you get your theme to use the following syntax?

<!--sample -->
<!-- Framework CSS -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="../../blueprint/screen.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="../../blueprint/print.css" type="text/css" media="print">
<!--[if lt IE 8]>
<!-- Import fancy-type plugin for the sample page. -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="../../blueprint/plugins/fancy-type/screen.css" type="text/css" media="screen, projection">

The media= part I can't fix with the theme? I tried the following:

<media>screen, projection</media>

But the generated code doesn't take the media stuff into account at all.

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/dev/blueprint.nsf/screen.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/dev/blueprint.nsf/fancyscreen.css">

Any suggestions on this?

The media attribute is not currently supported under XPages. It is something that has been requested, and I believe is being looked at.

An alternative syntax resources is implemented in R8.5.2 (beta) and it supports the media attribute....The syntax is something like this: <resources> <styleSheet media="print" type="text/css" href="/path/to/stylesheet.css"></styleSheet> </resources> I don't know if the syntax will change or if it even makes it to the final build (as always with beta software) but we can at least hope(the syntax is much cleaner imho).

Browsers will respect media commands embedded in a style sheet with XPages before 8.5.2, for example: @media print { .buttonLeft {display:none} .buttonRight {display:none} .locallinks {display:none} } @media screen { .buttonLeft {display:block} .buttonRight {display:block} .locallinks {display:block} }
