At the moment we have created our own custom theme. We have used the atlantic theme (github link) as the base for our theme.

In the ZK-Small talks at this link we have noticed the new Notification style, which we are fond of.

Is there any way we can integrate this message box style to our custom theme? I have noticed that atlantic theme version does not include this styling.

Kind regards,

Atlantic is a separate theme which has different styles from the themepack themes.

Still the styles to achieve this look can be applied on top of the atlantic theme.

Here and example with inline styles, to achieve a the same look:

        .z-notification .z-notification-content {
            overflow: hidden;
            border-radius: 4px;
            border: 1px solid #eee;
            background-color: white;
            color: rgba(0,0,0,0.9);
            box-shadow: 0 0 16px rgb(0 0 0 / 16%);

        .z-notification .z-notification-content::after {
            content: '';
            position: absolute;
            left: 0;
            top: 0;
            bottom: 0;
            width: 5px;
        .z-notification-info  { color: #59A755; }
        .z-notification-info .z-notification-content::after { background-color: #59A755; }

        .z-notification-warning { color: #CC6D33; }
        .z-notification-warning .z-notification-content::after { background-color: #CC6D33; }

        .z-notification-error { color: #AE312E; }
        .z-notification-error .z-notification-content::after { background-color: #AE312E; }

Test code from java:

Clients.showNotification("WARNING", "warning", null, "middle_left", 0);
Clients.showNotification("ERROR", "error", null, "middle_right", 0);

Here the output when used in combination with atlantic.

Since you already have a custom theme project I assume you know where to add the styles in your theme project. And reuse less variables where possible.

Hi cor3000,

I see. That explains a lot. I have added the current styles to my custom project. It is located in popup.less. After generating the jar and added to my webproject is still saw the old styling. As a test i changed a line to:

 .z-notification-info  { color: #59A755; }
 .z-notification-info .z-notification-content::after { background-color: #000000; }

As you can see the background of the info message notification should be black. Even then after regenerating the jar and added to my project, i still could not see the change (black blackground).

Am i on the right track or am i missing something? If i add the styling manually in my .zul it works. But i gladly want it by default in my custom theme.

if your styles don't update, the something must be missing in your build deploy process
