#7647 closed bug (notabug)

CSS class repeated needlessly

Reported by: johnp Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.9.0
Component: ui.css-framework Version: 1.8.15
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


I downloaded a build of 1.8.15 with the UI lightness theme. The resulting jquery-ui-1.8.15.custom.css contains many instances where a class appears multiple times in a given rule. One example appears under "Interaction Cues". .ui-state-error is listed 3 times for this single rule.

.ui-state-error, .ui-widget-content .ui-state-error, .ui-widget-header .ui-state-error {border: 1px solid #cd0a0a; background: #b81900 url(images/ui-bg_diagonals-thick_18_b81900_40x40.png) 50% 50% repeat; color: #ffffff; }

I know that it's valid CSS, but it adds unnecessary weight to the CSS file.

The proposed change will cut the specificity in half, down from two class names to one class name. This means a simple rule like

.main div { border: none; }

later in a stylesheet will override this style where before this change it would not. If the classes were listed needlessly I could understand removing them, but they're listed in this manner by design and removing them will have a negative effect.

Recommend closing "as designed"/invalid
