I am using EP6 SP7. I have integrated some webdynpro applications running on my local WAS system in the portal.
The problem I face is that whatever changes I make to the portal theme are not applied to the webdynpro iViews. Even if I select one of the 5 standard themes given by SAP I still see the webdynpro iViews in the same default blue colour.
The documentation says that webdynpro iVies pick up the portal theme by themselves, but this does not reflect in my portal. I also notice that this worked well in EP6 SP2 (we were using that earlier) but not in the SP7 version.
Please provide your inputs.
in SP7 the Web Dynpro runtime uses the Web Dynpro theme by default. BUt you can switch this settings as described in the document about the theme settings in Web Dynpro available here in SDN.
So - this is not a bug but a feature
P.S. Even with SP9 you could have problems with the themes. If your portal is "too old" the used style sheets defining the theme are not compatible. In such cases you must use the Web Dynpro theme, to make sure that the Web Dynpro application runs properly.
