Hello guys, I'am new in OpenERP and I created a form. Then i want change the style of some fields: color, background-color, font. I seriously need your help. Thanks in advance

Hi, There are two ways to change the style of fields in from The first way is change in the main css file that is base.css.Go to web module of Openerp OpenERP 7.0-20150326\server\openerp\addons\web\static\src\css\base.css The second way is creating your own css file and add into your customized module like OpenERP 7.0-20150326\server\openerp\addons\your _module\static\src\css\test.css

Hi ankita, Overriding the main file is not a proper way to do, it's not recommended. Only your second tips is correct, using a custom css. @daouda dont forget to add it in your manifest for the V7 or includ it in your template (V8). regards

I normally use a new css file in my custom module to do the changes needed for CSS

 ORIGINAL style @ base.css
.openerp .oe_form_sheet_width {
  min-width: 650px;
  max-width: 860px;
  margin: 0 auto;

In base.css, I had to change the max-width style from 860px to 1200px. So, I did the following
OVERWRITE style @ my_custom.css .openerp .oe_form_sheet_width { max-width: 1200px !important; }
