Is it possible change the style of anchors with css directly in the html file?

In theory, yes, you can edit the HTML. In practice you better use custom anchors (requires some coding though).

Yuri, you mentioned that the best way to change the anchor style is to use custom anchors.

I'm working on a custom app (without webplayer) and wanted to to add anchors for all the selectable objects but in this case I cannot really use the custom anchors. If I got it right, you must add the custom anchors before loading the 3D model data, which means that there's not yet any information about the selectable objects. The generic anchors, however, should be created after loading the 3D model and have the selectable objects available and this suits me better.

Based on your custom anchor example, I managed to get the generic ones work ok, and even change the appearance with the css-style code lines. It would be much better if these css-style settings were located within the (main) css file so I tried that and couldn't make it work. Is it even supposed to work, or is it still on your TODO list perhaps?

Edit: It seems that you cannot change the appearance of the achors quite as freely in javascript as you would by using css. I'm really curious now, how did you do it with your dairy plant app?

Cheers, Harri

As to the previous comment, I actually figured out the latter part and the solution looks pretty nice. However, the css part, i.e. the style definitions being in a css file, that's still something that doesn't seem to work. Any ideas for that?

Hi Harri,

As far as I know, declaring anchor styles in the main css file should work. Please make sure your css declarations are properly assigned/referenced etc.

Hi Yuri,

Indeed it does work! It took me a while to get everything sorted but now it works perfectly, just the way I wanted, with the anchor style stuff hidden away in the css file instead of the javascript code. Whehey!

Cheers, Harri
