Guide Styling Made Easy

Have you ever tried creating a custom style for a LiveCycle Guide?  Editing the CSS in your favorite text editor was not an enjoyable experience and most often did not produce the desired results.

If this describes a situation you’ve had in the past consider today your lucky day!  A Guide Style Builder tool has been released on the Adobe Developer Connection.  The Style Builder application is a standalone GUI tool to create style sheets for LiveCycle ES2 Guides. This simple AIR application makes it dead simple for anyone to create their own custom Guide compatible CSS that can then be compiled to a SWC and referenced by Guide Builder.

With the Style Builder, you can:

  • Change colors and fonts for various elements of the guide
  • Set the background image and the logo to use
  • Change indent settings and set the appearance of rectangles
