Themes in Victoire are differents view for the same kind of a widget. For exemple, in the ButtonWidget, we are able to customize the size and the type meaning of our button. But what if your client wants something fancy, for example a shadow or some rounded corners ? Here comes the widget theme concept and the theme will be available in the Style edition tab.

How to create a new theme ?

Let's continue with our RoundedCorner WidgetButton example.

  1. think about a name for our theme...

RoundedCorner !

ok, that's a great name then create the showRoundedCorner file in :

  • in the @WidgetButtonBundle/Resources/views directly if it's a global theme you want to use and reuse and share between projects.
  • in app/Resources/WidgetButtonBundle/views if instead you'll just use it in this project

  • Add a translation for your theme in the victoire domain.

According the scope (global or local) you decided in first part, add the required translations file victoire.LOCALE.xliff. For a global scope, you'll have been asked to create english and french translation files, for local, you obvisouly can do according your own needs :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xliff xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:xliff:document:1.2" xmlns:jms="urn:jms:translation" version="1.2">
  <file date="2013-11-27T18:15:06Z" source-language="en" target-language="en" datatype="plaintext" original="not.available">
      <trans-unit resname="victoire.VictoireWidgetButtonBundle.theme.RoundedCorner.label">
        <target>Rounded Corners</target>
