Hi,

By using the example of the PictureField field in the PersonForm class of the Contacts project, I try to perform a similar function in my application, i.e. display the icon from the "fontawesome" font. In addition, I would like to give it a dedicated color and size. For this purpose:


  • In the * .less file file from the * .ui.html module I added such a CSS class:
    .bigIcon {
    	font-size: 50px;
    	color: red;
    }
    

  • In the PictureField field definion I added implementation of this method:
    @Override
    protected String getConfiguredCssClass() {
              return "bigIcon";
    }
    



Everything works (i.e. a red icon is displayed) except for the size of the icon. It still has a default, small size. As if the css font-size attribute has been ignored...

Am I doing something wrong, or is there a different, more appropriate way to change the size of the icon in the above case?

For issues like that, you need to start the dev-tools (F12) of your browser. Most likely your CSS selector is not selective enough, which means a selector from the default Scout CSS is "stronger" than yours.

When you inspect your icon in the dev-tools, you'll see which styles are applied to your icon (and also which are overridden). Also you must check, on which DOM element exactly Scout adds the CSS class, because your selector must match that hierarchy. See the screenshot here.

This should work:
.image-field.bigIcon > .field > .font-icon {
    color: red;
    font-size: 50px;
}
