Defining skins

Administrators can define skins by using the AR System Skins form (the following figure), which is installed with BMC Remedy AR System server. Entries in this form specify the properties and the permissions for each skin that you want to define. Each skin you define is an entry in the form.

      You can use this type when defining a skin for multiple fields.

      Field Type

      Choose the field type from the menu.

      You can use this type when defining a skin for all fields of the same type.

      System

      For this option, the Type Identifier field is disabled.

      You can use this type when defining a skin for any system level components (like pop-ups) or tables.

      DVM

      The module name, as defined in the Data Visualization Module form
      For more information, see Skin support for DVM.

      You can use this type when defining skin for any DVM.

      Web Header

      For this option, the Type Identifier field is set to All by default.
      For more information, see Skin support for Web Header.

      You can use this type when defining skin for any web header.

    • Property — Select a property that corresponds to the field type being skinned. For DVM, AR Template, or Web Header, property is a string value that can be used as per user requirements.

      Note

      The fields in the AR System Skins Properties dialog box are not validated, so if you enter Field Type in the Type field, select a property from the same type that you entered in the Type Identifier field. Otherwise, the skin property might not be applied. (Consequently, fields of different types can sometimes share the same property ID, in which case that skin property might be applied).

    • Property Value — Enter the value for the specified property. For example, if the property is a background color of blue, the value must be the hexadecimal value for the shade of blue being applied. If the property is an image, the value must be the name of the server image object.
      To specify colors, you can either enter a hexadecimal value for the color, or click the down arrow to select a color from the color picker.
  5. Click OK to close the AR System Skins Properties dialog box.
    The information you entered appears in the Skins Properties list in the AR System Skins form.

After a skin is defined, it can be applied to these scenarios:

  • All forms and views on a server
  • All forms and views in an application
  • All views in a form
  • A specific view of a form

    Note

    To enable application-level skins, access the form through the application by using the following URL: http://<serverName>:<portNumber>/arsys/apps/<serverName>/<applicationName>/<formName>/
