Hello:

At client side my page contain a com.google.gwt.user.client.ui.HTML, this HTML will contain a large number of <div> and each <div> is associated with its own style. all the styles are defined in another css file.

My question is how to apply the style to the HTML content?
i use
<g:HTML ui:field="myfield" styleName="project_entry.css" />

but it does not work.

Thanks.

try like this:

<ui:UiBinder xmlns:ui='urn:ui:com.google.gwt.uibinder'
xmlns:gwt='urn:import:com.google.gwt.user.client.ui'>
<ui:style src="project_entry.css" />

Thanks for the reply, this is what i do, however no effect.
it will generate html like:

<div class="project_entry.css">
...
</div>

but it will not apply the style from the file to the div element automatically. 
Do i have to style each class in the <div> one by one?

July,

Any tag in a UiBinder can have a CSS class, but:
  • Native HTML tags like <div> must use their "class" attribute. So <div class="somClass"/>
  • GWT classes, like <g:HTML /> must use the "styleName" attribute, since otherwise there would be a conflict with the Java "class" keyword, so use <g:HTML styleName="someClass"/>
Don't use the CSS filename in these tags.

Include you CSS file via either:
  • <ui:style src="project_entry.css" />  in the top of the UiBinder file OR
  • <stylesheet src=" project_entry.css"/> in your project module file.

Sincerely,
Joseph

I solved this by using ClientBundle.
