Increase Font size for Save message in Asset screen

Technote (FAQ)


Can you please suggest us how to increase the Font size of the Save
message in the Banner/header in Asset screen.


There is no configurable way to do this within Maximo. You would need to manually modify the style sheet files (css files) in order to see a change. Any .css file changes are unsupported and will not be preserved in an upgrade.
Path is maximo\applications\maximo\maximouiweb\webmodule\webclient\css. In the maximo.css file you would need to change the text information that corresponds with the class file that is used to render the text. Once the changes have been made , please make sure to rebuild and redeploy maximo.ear file.

Maximo uses the following class in the .css file to control
style the banner message text:

/* userMessage */
color: #DFB4A2;

This class is believed to be unchanged from Maximo 6.2.
This class does not specify a text size so you will have to add it in:

font-size: 12px;

changing the px value to the desired size (it is probably currently 11px) -- keep in mind that if you go too big, the text will start to affect the other banner elements.
