The wrptstudio.css file contains a lot of selectors, which are mainly class selectors consisting of a dot "." followed by a class name. These selectors are the links between the Web Report Studio window elements and the style. They specify what elements are affected by the CSS declarations. You can modify or add CSS declarations for a selector or a group of selectors, or add CSS rules to customize the style of the elements.
In addition, when you hover the mouse pointer over an item on a toolbar, you can find the background color of the item changes to yellow. This is achieved by the combination of the state mechanism and CSS. Web Report Studio marks element states using an 8-bit binary number which will be converted to a decimal number. You can append the decimal number to the end of the class name in a CSS selector to indicate the state of the element, for example, studioPanel_16 means that the panels in Web Report Studio are invisible. The following table lists the most commonly used decimal numbers in wrptstudio.css and the corresponding element states:
|Decimal Number||Element State|
|0||Normal state. Usually, you need not add it in class names.|
|3||Usually having the same style effect as 1.
|6||Triggered and Hovered|
