Inline Style with Poll Feature

The results bar of the Poll feature uses an inline style to set the background-color. It would be nice if the individual elements had their own classes so they could be skinned easily.

Thanks,
Joe

Re: Inline Style with Poll Feature

Hi Joe,

I did not implement the Poll feature myself, but looking at the code here is what it does.

1. It looks for a file named pollresult.gif in the skin folder (I think it expects like a 1 pixel gif of whatever color you want.)

2. If it does not find the gif file, it checks Web.config for a setting named PollResultColorIfNoImage

3. If no value is provided in the setting it uses blue

I'm thinking a better solution will be to add a color setting so the bar color can be specified using our color picker.

Best,

Joe

Re: Inline Style with Poll Feature

Hi Joe,

That process seems a little non-cms to me. ;-) I like your idea about adding a color setting that will allow the user to choose a color from the picker.

Thanks,
Joe D.

Re: Inline Style with Poll Feature

Christian Fredh implemented the Poll way back long before we even had a color picker available, at least he had a solution to make it skinnable, my fault for never documenting it really, but it will be easy to add this setting now and that will make it more friendly. I'll get this done soon so it will be in the next release.

Best,

Joe
