<10> Section 3.1.4.2:  Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 does not support this operation.

<11> Section 3.1.4.2.2.1:  In Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, the scope of the CustomizeCss operation is one SPWeb, referred to as a site in this documentation.

The client calls CustomizeCss as the first step in customizing the styles and formatting of a site.

In Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, the default central location in which the server maintains the default copy of each CSS file is in the following folder under the Microsoft Shared folder:

\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033\STYLES

By default, the style for all sites is controlled by the uncustomized copies of the CSS files that reside in this location.

When the client uses CustomizeCss, Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 makes a copy of the CSS file in the following site-specific folder:

\layouts\1033\styles\

Additionally, the server configures the site to use the non-default copy located in the preceding site-specific folder.

The administrator or client can then customize the CSS file in the site-specific location.

The cssFile specified by the input parameter is the name of a CSS file that already exists on the server in the default central location. The cssFile name must match the file name of the file in the default style folder on the server, including the .css file extension.

In Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, the following CSS files are installed in the default location:

  • CALENDAR.CSS

  • CONTROLS.CSS

  • CORE.CSS

  • datepicker.css

  • EwrDefault.css

  • HELP.CSS

  • HtmlEditorCustomStyles.css

  • HtmlEditorTableFormat.css

  • MENU.CSS

  • OWSNOCR.CSS

  • PORTAL.CSS

  • RCA.CSS

  • SiteManagerCustomStyles.css

More than one CSS file contributes to the style and formatting of pages on a site, and clients can customize multiple CSS files on the same site by using CustomizeCss more than one time. After the client has used CustomizeCss and the server has copied the CSS file from the default central location to the site-specific folder, the client can change that style sheet, and the server displays those pages using the custom style.

Clients can revert the site from the style and format as specified by the customized CSS files back to the default by using RevertCss, specifying that CSS file name as input.

In SharePoint Foundation 2010, the default central location in which the server maintains the default copy of each CSS file is in the following folder under the Microsoft Shared folder:

\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033\STYLES

In SharePoint Foundation 2013, the default central location in which the server maintains the default copy of each CSS file is in the following folder under the Microsoft Shared folder:

\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033\STYLES
