Is it possible to overload css style in list view ?

on 2/15/13, 10:51 AM 2,312 views

I would like to customize list view (alignment, fonts, colors,...) I have noticed the 'base.css' file in web module where all styles are defined. But I don't want to modify it, because I'll have to do so for each new versions.

So, is it possible to overload / modify or use another style in the list view ?


Thank you. But I just want to modify or affect a new css class to a particular list view, I don't want to change all the list views of OpenERP.

If you mean you want to edit the styles of a particular model's list view within OpenERP, that is not possible with pure CSS. The list view CSS rules will apply to all list views regardless of model.

You could do it with a lot of hacking - I'm talking about a custom module which uses javascript to dynamically load a css file based on the model name - data which may or may not be available at the front-end to javascript anyway.

However, you can define colours for rows in a listview based on a domain:
