Any Rails + 960gs Gurus here? - zebra striping tables

People,

For zebra striping tables on basic Rails apps I have quite happily
used:

in the table listing in index.html.erb with

table tr.evenrow { background-color: white; }
table tr.oddrow { background-color: silver; }

in the application style sheet but I can’t get it to work with the 960
Grid System stuff.

I have messed around using “tbody” tags and nth-child etc but can’t get
anywhere - anyone got any clues? I can’t find any mailing list or other
support for 960gs.

Thanks,

Phil.

forget this, try http://www.w3.org/Style/Examples/007/evenodd.en.html

  • so, make your strips with CSS, not with your application

Tom,

I have tried that (if you read more closely you will see) - that is why
I was asking if anyone was familiar with the 960gs - their existing
style sheets seem to be blocking whatever I try . .

Thanks,

Phil.

did you check order of your stylesheets? Your stylesheet should be the
last one. Use inspector tool and check style property.

or add important to your definition

eg

table.mytable tr:nth-child(even) {background: #CCC !important;}

Tom,

I put mine last but it didn’t help.

However, then I used the inspector tool which eventually led me to a
better understanding of the supplied stylesheets - and I realised there
was already something there for ODD rows ONLY - I missed it before
because I was expecting a mention of both odd and even next to each
other - in this case, tr.odd just makes the odd rows have a background
of white when normally all the rows will have a background of light
grey.

Thanks!

Phil.

Use twitter-bootstrap and you will forget about it:
http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/base-css.html#tables

Just add the needed gems into your Gemfile:

gem ‘bootstrap-will_paginate’, ‘~> 0.0.9’
gem ‘bootstrap-datepicker-rails’, ‘~> 0.6.37’
gem ‘bootstrap-sass’, ‘~> 2.2.2.0’

and require bootstrap in your css file (in the very first line:

@import “bootstrap”;

and you are done.
