You need to learn CSS. There isn't much point in trying to learn jQuery Mobile if you don't know CSS - you aren't going to get anywhere. There are many free resources on the web for learning CSS. Use them.
Look up "CSS cascade".
The following appears in a CSS file:
What color are characters in a <div> with class myclass?
In general, a CSS rule that appears further down the page in a file, or one in a file that is loaded later, supersedes an earlier rule.
Unfortunately, it's not quite that simple, and there are some fairly complex rules about how multiple rules that target the same element combine. Those rules are called the CSS cascade. You need to master the CSS cascade if you want to bend JQM appearance to your liking.
It's conventional to override JQM CSS in a CSS file that you load after you load the JQM CSS. You should not edit the JQM CSS file itself, as that can make it very difficult to upgrade.
You can also use the Theme system to customize appearance in fairly limited ways.
Thanks, I can see your point. since the jqm specific css and js are loaded first, with my.css and my.js being optional follow-up, adding !important mod to my.css or css html will do the trick.
with this learning right from the beginning, I am afraid it is easier said than done, regardless of how true and right this advice is.
I have made several attempts to do the tutorial on w3 but could not grasp the knowledge to be able to later use it.
I certainly am going to go through it sooner or later, but until then, i find it worthwhile and complementary to try action.
have done a great deal of js that way so far by adapting things readily available on the net strictly to my purposes.
I have seen your personal background, watusiware. Impressive. apparently you are a different mind. that's why it may be so impossible to conceive of inability to learn a system thoroughly for reasons other than mb laziness.
thank you for your help, and words of reprimand. I will do my best to live up to your advice ;)
