This theme is no longer available. Please take a look at our new Echo theme for APEX 4.

Charlie Series APEX Theme

A feature-rich and flexible theme that can be customised using the jQuery UI ThemeRoller.

You can create your own look and feel for the Charlie theme with the jQueryUI ThemeRoller.


Install "Charlie" theme

Follow the instructions in the theme installation guide.


Create your own theme using the jQueryUI ThemeRoller

Go to the jQueryUI ThemeRoller page and, using the interactive GUI, create your theme by choosing from any of the available settings. Then click Download theme from the ThemeRoller control panel. On the next page click Deselect all components, make sure Custom Theme is selected in the drop down list and optionally edit the Theme Folder Name under Advanced Theme Settings. Then click the Download button.


Unzip the jQuery UI theme download file

Unzip the theme download file to a suitable folder on your computer. This will create a folder structure containing the jQuery UI bundle, which will include a folder named css that will contain your new theme folder (by default named custom-theme).


Transfer the jQueryUI theme folder to your Charlie theme installation

Copy the jQueryUI theme folder located in Step 3 to the css folder within your Charlie theme installation.


Edit the value of UI_THEME in your APEX application

During installation of the Charlie theme you will have created a substitution string named UI_THEME in your APEX application. Change the value of UI_THEME to the name of the folder that contains your new jQueryUI theme (by default custom-theme).

Your application will now use your new theme.
