The generated HTML files get their styles from


I would like to tell them using

    Hi Helmut,

    it should be possible to define the stylesheets to use for a WD application by defining a theme url (as far as i know, this is also the way the theme is determined if running in portal). This is achieved by adding the url parameter "style_sheet" to the WD application url.

    The theme url has to be fully qualified and has to point to the theme "root directory". As default, this is the <...>/sap_tradeshow directory you mentioned. For SSR "ur/ur_" is appended, followed by the client (for example ie6) and ".css".

    But this feature is undocumented and seems to be reserved for portal usage, so maybe you're running into trouble somehow.

    Hope that helps.

    • Hi Josef,

      it´s not just one css-file, it´s a bundle of css-files. All these files are located in one directory with sub-dirs.

      After generating your Theme in the portal you have to copy the dirs from the portal location (don´t know exactly where to find them, you have to look) to the web dynpro server and location (see above).

      Then you can use the url parameter style_sheet=
