We are announcing today our sleek, new Obsidian skin that will be part of the SmartClient/Smart GWT 12.0 release. Like the ‘Tahoe’ skin that was released earlier this year, we designed this skin using your feedback asking for current design trends towards a flatter, square look and feel. Obsidian is our new dark skin with a design that is both sophisticated and modern for your applications built with SmartClient and Smart GWT.
Have a sneak peek at the new skin below. You can also find our full Showcase of examples using the new skin here.
Create charts that are both functional and beautiful with the new Obsidian skin.
Chart colors really “pop” on the black background.
How to view different skins in the showcase
To see ‘Stratus’, ‘Obsidian’, ‘Tahoe’, and other skins in action, select from the ‘Skin’ dropdown list in the showcase.
How to get the new skin
The new skin will be delivered in SmartClient/Smart GWT 12.0*. The new skin will be available for free for all those who purchase a license or license upgrade for Smart GWT/SmartClient 12.x.
*The new Smart GWT release version number will jump to 12.0 to match the versioning on SmartClient. For more information, you can read the blog post here.
