I haven’t yet found a style selector guide for ADF Mobile. The SkinningDemo from the samples touches upon very few components and isn’t of much use here. Anyway, the best way to explore the available skin selectors is to look through the css files in the deploy folder. I was mainly interested in skinning for […]

The portal may not have any public content to put on the home page. In my current project, the entire portal has to be secured and available only to authenticated users. You […]
When you copy the WebCenter FX skin, the copied skin doesn’t work as expected. Without any changes to the copy, I would expect the skin to render the same as WebCenter FX but it doesn’t. My guess is that the copied skin doesn’t inherit properly from the internal base skin used by WebCenter FX. The […]
