ZK 7 is an upcoming big release focusing on HTML5 & CSS3. Simplified by reducing the DOM structure and JavaScript code, ZK 7′s theme will be more easily customizable than previous versions and its JavaScript code running more efficiently than ever. ZK 7 will also support CSS3′s icon font feature bringing the great benefits of being able to scale, change colour and include shadows to your icons easily and conveniently . In the following demo, we will show you how you can customize a theme to look like ones coming from Wrapbootstrap (a marketplace for twitter bootstrap).

Feature Highlight

1- Bootstrap Theme Support – In ZK 7, you can apply twitter bootstrap themes to ZK seamlessly, such as Button, Group Button, and Layout System, without breaking the components’ functionality and look & feel.

2- LESS Support – The theme of ZK 7 is based on LESS, a dynamic stylesheet language, to generate the css.dsp file for ZK 7 to use.

3- Icon Font Support – With this feature, you can use the setIconSclass method to specify the icon font for a component, which is extended from LabelImageElement class, or, use built-in icons from ZK 7, which is integrated with Font Awesome

4- CSS3 Support – Since ZK 7′s theme is totally revised by CSS3 features including gradient, box-shadow, border-radius etc, users can now customize their themes with CSS3 pretty much instantaneously.
