Menubar-widget, changing icon size

Menubar-widget, changing icon size

Hello devs,

 

What would be the easiest way to change the icon size in the standard ptc-menubar widget in Thingworx? I couldn't find it in the list of configurable properties/style properties of the widget, and didn't have luck with changing it with css. The default size is very small, making the icons somewhat unreadable.

 

I tested three different css lines like following, but couldn't even get these to appear in the browser dev tools. If i go manually to the icon element in the dev tools and set width/height to desired values it works and looks nice, but can't get it to be part of mashup configuration.

 

 

ptcs-menubar::part(root)::part(main-area)::part(items-area)::part(item)::part(icon) {
    height: 3em;
    width: 3em;
}
@supports (ptcs-style-unit: "PTCS-MENUBAR") {
    [part="icon"] {
        height: 3em;
        width: 3em;
    }
}
@supports (ptcs-style-unit: "PTCS-ACCORDION") {
    [part="icon"] {
        height: 3em;
        width: 3em;
    }
}

 

 

I even noticed that there is support for this in the web component API for ptcs-menubar (https://support.ptc.com/help/thingworx_hc/visual_sdk/Web_Components/ptcs-menubar/), but seems like it's not implemented in the widget itself?

I had the same problem and your snippets pointed in the right direction. The following solution works for me (TWX 9.3.8):

 

@supports (ptcs-style-unit: "PTCS-MENU-ITEM.light") {
    [part="icon"] {
        height: 24px;
        width: 24px;
    }
}
@supports (ptcs-style-unit: "PTCS-MENU-ITEM.dark") {
    [part="icon"] {
        height: 24px;
        width: 24px;
    }
}

But I am not sure where the differentiation between "dark" and "light" happens.

Hi @natpaa 

 

 I tried this at my end and found the below CSS to be working for increasing the icon size in mashup.
.mycustomclass ptcs-button {
ptcs-button-icon--dim: 100px !important;
height: 100px !important;
width: 100% !important;
max-height: 100% !important;
max-width: 100% !important;
min-height: 20% !important;
min-width: 20% !important;
background-color: transparent !important;
border: none !important;
padding: 20% !important;
}
.mycustomclass .widget-ptcsbutton::part(icon){
width: 90px;
height: 90px;
}

After this, You would also need to change the max width and height for icon in the style properties section.

Below you can see the CSS structure of reaching till icon.

Please try the above and you should be able to change the icon size

Hi @Surya_Tiwari 

 

Unfortunately I didn't get it working with the css you provided. The problem is with ptc-menubar widget, not with a ptcs-button widget. The icon size in the menu should grow.

Hi, @natpaa   kindly create a case with the PTC support team, and we will analyze it.

Thank you @DanZ, that works!

I also noticed that if you change the menu type to "nested accordion", you need following snippet to change menu icon size:

@supports (ptcs-style-unit: "PTCS-ACCORDION-ITEM.menu") {
    [part="icon"] {
        height: 36px;
        width: 36px;
    }
}
