    Changes in 6.1 That May Affect Your Upgrade

    Changes to Themes

    The look and feel of the JasperReports® Server web interface has been redesigned to modernize the application's appearance. To accomplish this, markup and styles have been modified. As a result of these modifications, custom themes developed for the previous interface will need to be updated for the new interface.

    The following table lists the changes made to the user interface and describes some of the steps necessary to update custom themes in overrides_custom.css. The main changes are in the banner, body, footer, and login page. The changes to the login page are extensive. Instead of attempting to update an existing login page, you should re-implement the login page in the new default theme.

    For information on developing new themes, see the JasperReports® Server Administrator Guide and the JasperReports® Server Ultimate Guide.

    Updating Themes in JasperReports® Server 6.1

    Element Classname and Modfications File Notes



    Give custom value to height


    Default value:
    height: 32px



    Set custom top and bottom values that position the body of the application between the banner and footer without overlap


    Default value:
    top: 32px
    bottom: 17px

    This value needs to be equal to or greater than the height of .banner

    The bottom position needs to be adjusted only if the height of the footer is changed



    Give custom values to height and width that match the dimensions of your logo

    Adjust margins around the logo if needed


    Default values:

    height: 22px
    width: 176px

    margin-top: 6px
    margin-right: 4px
    margin-bottom: 0
    margin-left: 8px

    Main Navigation

    .menu.primaryNav .wrap

    Set height and line-height to 1px shorter than .banner


    height: 31px
    line-height: 31px

    Main Navigation Home icon

    .menu.primaryNav #main_home .wrap > .icon

    Set height to be the same as .banner

    Set values for width and background-position to fit your image.
