Is there any way to search CSS for a certain background color?


  • I'm not sure if this is in the right place or not. But I know a background color by using the pixie tool. I just don't know where the CSS Style sheet is for the button in question. Is there any way that I can do a search of CSS style sheets in a folder location with the background I know is defined to the button? In this case "#D4D0C8".

    Thanks for your review and am hopeful for a reply.

  • You can download the css file in your code, and then search for the right class or id. BTW - your request seems strange. What is the scenario? Maybe there is a better solution.

  • If you are running in IE you can f12 and examine what style applies to a given control via the css tab of developer tools.

  • It's not Internet Explorer's the text color within a button in Microsoft Visual Studio Premium 2013 and specifically within the "Preview" of a SSRS Report. Currently the button "View Report" has a white font on a gray background. Just not real nice to look at in Visual Studio and I was hoping for a quick fix in which I could alter the button contents on the "View Report" button.

  • You didn't feel mentioning that might just be relevant?
