I am trying to change the look and feel of my spotfire dashboard, and I have a CSS file for it. Is this code snippet for that?
If so, could you please elaborate, where do I add this code, or if you explain the process.

I tried and got the error: "the element 'link' is not supported"

Jose Leviaguirre said...


This should work on spotfire < 6 because text areas had no html option. In any case, you might want to check if the html sanitation is off: Tools > Administration Manager > [preferences] > selected group:yourGroup > TextArea.TextAreaPreferences.PerformHtmlSanitation:False

Thanks Jose,

I set performHtmlSanitation to False, and had to save and restart spotfire for it to take effect. Thanks Much!

Will this still work in Spotfire 7.0? I cannot get this to work, as the text is just interpreted as text.

Mark, I am not sure. I have not had the chance to play with 7.0. T
