In an HTML dialog, if I use either of the following instructions for importing a style:

<h:outputStylesheet name="portlet/css/presential.css"/>


<link rel="stylesheet" href="#{resource['portlet/css/presential.css']}" type="text/css"/>

the CSS file is loaded (see line #1 below) with the request attribute "?ln=xpertivy-14-WebContent".

Unfortunately, it cannot find the images defined in the CSS (see 2 last lines). Notice that the request attribute above is not appended to the image request. alt text

This could be important because if I manually request the following URL: http://localhost:8082/ivy/faces/javax.faces.resource/portlet/images/clock24.png?ln=xpertivy-14-webContent

I can successfully get the clock24.png image.

Is it actually a bug, or is there a particular way to do it?

hi @adriano-labate, it was the http-link. It's a known issue. Just putting two ` round the link and it works...

It should be possible to access images in the webContent folder if you reference the image similar to this in the .css file:

   background-image:url(#{resource['portlet/images/clock24.png']}) !important;

Had to add url("#{resource['portlet/images/clock24.png']}") - but works like a charm. Thanks. :)

This solution is valid if we use an external CSS file whose content is under control.

However, if an external 3rd-party JavaScript library or framework is used, it often comes with CSS style sheets and referenced images.

If the developer puts these resources in the WebContent folder, I suppose everything will work fine, except for the images referenced by the CSS style sheets. Unless you edit them by hand to fix all image paths located in the 3rd-party style sheets, which is laborious and error-prone.

You can use a regular expression to make this less error prone - something like url((.+)) [search string] and url("#{resource['img:\1']}") [replace string]. Whereas 'img' would be the target folder like Heinrich Spreiter suggested in his tutorial about using ThemeRoller for Xpert.ivy: http://blog.xpertivyhacker.ch/search/label/ThemeRoller

It does not seem to be possible to access images within the webContent-folder from an externally loaded style-sheet. Maybe as a workaround: If you are using a PageTemplate, just put your style-definitions using images there. The code would be:


...whereas the prefered way is to put in the CMS.
