Customizing the GUI

Can anyone tell me if there is an easy way to customize the appearance of the web GUI in 3.0? I need to manipulate the sizes of some custom fields to accomodate the expected input. Is there a style sheet or a Perl template I can mess with?

Thanks!

In my fidling with the display style i found that its almost exclusivly contained in css not sure where it hangs out but you shouldnt have to mess with anything but that unless you want to move components around.

/path/to/rt3/share/html/NoAuth/webrt.css

You probably want to copy that to
/path/to/rt3/local/html/NoAuth/webrt.css and make your changes there.

You can customize /rt3 base dir/share/html/Ticket/Elements/EditCustomField
(copy it the /rt3 base dir/local/ tree).

Before the part where it outputs the “input” form element, you could
have something like:

$inputsize = “25” if $CustomField->Name eq “YourCustomFieldName”;

Then have size="<%$inputsize%>" for the input element parameter.
