    List of variables to use for CSS

    I am looking to apply CSS into a page, so I would like a list of objects in which I am able to apply CSS to. Is there a way to bring up a list of available objects in a page to apply CSS to, in terms of legal variables? For example, I want to see what is the equivalent of first-child/nth child.

    Also, is there a list of attributes that are legal for each type of object? Recently I noticed that font-(attribute) attributes don't work.

    Thanks for reading.

    CSS cascades down through the UI hierachy.

    You can apply CSS at the App, Page, Section or Formitem level. Only the UI items that match the CSS selectors will be affected.

    You can also create themes and apply a theme to the complete UI hierachy by selecting the theme from the Form Tools Bar or assigning it to Lianja.theme.

    So, the basis behind CSS is to match UI elements based in CSS selectors.

    Lianja desktop apps are built on top of Qt widgets. You can study the various ways CSS can be described at:

    http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/sty...-examples.html

    All of the core Lianja UI elements subclass Qt widgets.

    The Lianja UI framework uses CSS selectors to be able to theme your Apps.

    So, you can apply CSS rules based on UI selectors.

    e.g.

    lianja_ui_page
    lianja_ui_section
    lianja_ui_formitem
    lianja_ui_formitem_label
    lianja_ui_formitem_data
    lianja_ui_textbox
    etc
