Getting Started with Azzurra 3

# Installation

To install Azzurra 3 in your application, please follow these steps:

  1. Extract package contents.
  2. Remove ext-all.css stylesheet from your Ext application page.
  3. Include azzurra-legacy.css stylesheet in your Ext application page.
  4. Include azzurra.js file in your Ext application page.
  5. Edit azzurra.js to override default active window color.
  6. Refresh your browser.

Once all steps are completed your app should look gray (which is a default color), except any active windows. But, since default appearance may seem gloomy, you could try using ui styles to make your app more visually appealing.

# UI Styles

Azzurra heavily relies on the ui component config (see Sencha Docs) for enhancing the appearance of Ext JS widgets. To understand how ui config is applied, check the following example.

        xtype: 'panel',
        title: 'Panel',
        width: 300,
        height: 150,
        buttons: [{
               text: 'Button'
        xtype: 'panel',
        title: 'Panel with UI',
        width: 300,
        height: 150,
        cls: 'blue-panel',
        buttons: [{
               text: 'Button',
               cls: 'orange-button'
This panel got a blue frame from cls: 'blue-panel' config, and the button became orange by appyling cls: 'orange-button' config.

The following table shows which Ext components support ui styles.

Widget Colors State
Panel (panel, gridpanel, form)
Tab Panel
Progress Bar

The list of all applicable ui values is shown in the following table. Before using style, let's learn how to include styles in your application's CSS. In order to set wanted color to the widget, you should apply ui style to your config.

For example, if you want your panel to be green, cls: 'green-panel' config should be applied to the proper widget. And if you want the panel to be green only when the parent window is active, then you should set cls: 'green-panel-active' config.

State/Widget Window Panel Tab Panel Progress Bar Button
default blue-window blue-panel blue-tab blue-progress blue-button
green-window green-panel green-tab green-progress green-button
red-window red-panel red-tab red-progress red-button
orange-window orange-panel orange-tab orange-progress orange-button
black-window black-panel black-tab black-progress black-button
active blue-window-active blue-panel-active blue-tab-active blue-progress-active blue-button-active
green-window-active green-panel-active green-tab-active green-progress-active green-button-active
red-window-active red-panel-active red-tab-active red-progress-active red-button-active
orange-window-active orange-panel-active orange-tab-active orange-progress-active orange-button-active
black-window-active black-panel-active black-tab-active black-progress-active black-button-active

Active Window

Effects of any *-activeui style will be visible only while widget's parent window is active. The widget will turn to gray appearance when the parent window is deactivated (loses focus).

# Windows

Window ui styles are used for coloring windows within an application.

List of available window ui styles is shown below:

  • blue-window-active
  • red-window
  • red-window-active
  • orange-window
  • orange-window-active
  • green-window
  • green-window-active
  • black-window
  • black-window-active

Azzurra 3 includes JavaScript code which sets 'blue-window-active'ui as a default for all windows, which means that by default any window will turn blue once it's activated.

To override the default behavior, you should apply ui style in your window config.

Tab panels, grids, and buttons inherit ui style from the parent window. For that reason in the screenshot above, tab panel, grid and button are also displayed in blue, while the parent window is active.

# Panels

By default, panels don't inherit any base color from the parent window and appear gray.

List of available panel ui styles:

  • blue-panel
  • red-panel
  • green-panel
  • orange-panel
  • black-panel
  • blue-panel-active
  • red-panel-active
  • green-panel-active
  • orange-panel-active
  • black-panel-active

Panel ui styles may also be applied to grid and form panels (grid, form). While panels do not inherit windows ui color, any grid within a panel will inherit panel's ui color.

Panel ui style can be set for accordion items too.

# Tab Panels

Tab panel ui styles are used to enhance the visual appearance of tab panels.

List of available tab ui styles:

  • blue-tab
  • red-tab

  • orange-tab
  • black-tab
  • blue-tab-active
  • red-tab-active
  • green-tab-active
  • orange-tab-active
  • black-tab-active
A grid contained within tab panel inherits selection color from ui style applied to that tab panel. In the screenshot above, grid located in the red tab panel inherits its ui color.

Buttons can be styled using ui styles:

  • blue-button
  • red-button
  • orange-button
  • black-button
  • green-button
  • blue-button-active
  • red-button-active
  • orange-button-active
  • black-button-active

Any button located inside a window will inherit parent window's ui color.

# Progress Bars

Progress bar components can also be styled using ui styles:

  • blue-progress
  • red-progress
  • orange-progress
  • green-progress
  • black-progress
  • blue-progress-active
  • red-progress-active
