Custom styling of widget#

There is a possibility to make changes in the look and feel of a dataview. For this you need to take the following steps:

  • add a new CSS class(es) with desired settings in the <style> section of your HTML page or in your file with styles (don't forget to include your file on the page in this case):
<style>    .my_first_class {        /*some styles*/    }        .my_second_class {        /*some styles*/    }</style>
  • specify the name of the created CSS class (or names of classes separated by spaces) as the value of the css property in the DataView configuration:
var dataview = new dhx.DataView({     css:"my_first_class my_second_class"});

Custom styling of items#

You can style particular cells in the dataview. For example, apply some color to each even item, as in:

<style>    .bg-gray {        background: #efefef;    }</style>
var dataview = new dhx.DataView("dataview", {itemsInRow: 5});; (item, i) {    if (i % 2) {, {css: "bg-gray"})    }});

Custom styling of selection and focus#

You can apply your own styles for selection of items and focus with the help of the corresponding CSS classes: .dhx_dataview-item--selected and .dhx_dataview-item--focus. There is no need to use any additional custom classes.

<style>    .dhx_dataview-item--selected {        border-color: transparent;        box-shadow: 0px 1px 5px 0px rgb(2, 136, 209, 0.5),             inset 0px 0px 0px 1px rgb(2, 136, 209, 1);    }</style>
var dataview = new dhx.DataView("dataview", {itemsInRow: 3});
