How to center the header of a tree view

on 9/10/13, 6:59 AM 3,252 views


Could someone please tell me how to center the header of a tree view . I've tried to use a class css with the attribute text-align:center and noted it in the field (xml).

But this didn't work.

you can try to do so that was helpful for me

Using selector [data-id="my_field"]====> for a specific th tag and [data-field="my_field"] ====>for specefic td tag

Add the following code in your custom css file

   /*css properties */  

    /*css properties */

Thanks @ ZEeineb

In openerp-web -> addons -> web -> static -> src -> base.css you can find out following class :

.openerp th { font-weight: bold; vertical-align: middle; }

Modify this class by adding : text-align: center;

After modification refresh the browser, The header of tree view is aligned to 'center'.

Thank you for your answer.

The concern is that we apply a CSS style to the whole list so all the titles in this list will be centered or right where the same for all values ​​will be centered or right or left. Can we apply a style for a specefic tree or for specefic titles on the tree? Thank you.

@Hiral Patel, can we change the css alignment only for a particular tree?
