Styling options for Link controls

Establishing a consistent look for Link controls in your application saves development time, gives your application a more predictable user interface, and makes it easier for users to complete forms.

  • Designate the format of the Link control to provide a visual cue to users about the link's relative importance. If a form contains multiple links, set the Control format option to Strong for the primary link.

    For more information, see Specifying presentation options for an icon control.

  • Make minor changes to the placement and styling of a Link control by using Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) helper classes. For example, you can apply a helper class to center a Link control in a layout or to double its standard margins.

    For more information, see Adjusting cell styling with helper classes.

  • Make more extensive styling changes to Link controls in the application's skin.
