Modifying Oracle BI Presentation Services User Interface
In this article, I try to explain the concepts of customizing the User Interface in OBIEE. First we start with the basic understanding of style and skin concept. Then we come to the use of css files in presentation services and finally customize the look and feel of BI Answers, Dashboards and other UI.

About Skin Style
OBIEE uses “Styles” and “Skins” to generate the graphical representation.
Customizing the appearance of user interface is based on customizing the “skins” and “styles” which makes use of CSS styles and images. Difference between the two is that a style is used to customize a dashboard. If required, different dashboards can have different styles – whereas a skin is used to customize other User Interfaces, like Answers, Delivers, and the Administration screens.

You can modify the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) files and images stored in the default installation directory to create a custom user interface. The default images and style sheets are located in “OracleBIwebappress_oracle10” folder, where OracleBI is the installation directory. The relevant subdirectories are contained in this directory (for instance, b_mozilla_4, charts, images, maps, meters, popbin, portal, and views) for the current Oracle Business Intelligence style.

About Cascading Style Sheets to Modify Default Oracle BI Presentation Services
Style sheets can modify the default Oracle BI Presentation Services styles. Cascading style sheets allow Web developers to have control over the appearance of the objects within Oracle Business Intelligence. You can change images, backgrounds, font color and sizes,    table cell gridlines and cell padding and so on.
