Hi;

I have the following css.

.aui-header .aui-nav .aui-buttons .aui-button-primary,
.aui-header .aui-nav .aui-buttons .aui-button-primary:link,
.aui-header .aui-nav .aui-buttons .aui-button-primary:visited {
    background: #336ea9;
    background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #3b7fc4, #336ea9);
    background-image: -ms-linear-gradient(top,  #3b7fc4, #336ea9);
    background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(top,  #3b7fc4, #336ea9);
    background-image: -o-linear-gradient(top,  #3b7fc4, #336ea9);
    background-image: linear-gradient(top,  #3b7fc4, #336ea9);
    height: 28px;
    border: 0;
    box-shadow: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.1) 0 1px 0 0 inset, rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2) 0 1px 1px 0;
    color: #fff;    
    text-shadow: 0 1px 0 #295989;
}

Open in new window


and following jquery

$('.aui-buttons').css({ 'background-color': '#FF6633', 'background-image': '-webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, from(#FF6633), to(#FF6633))',
'background-image': '-webkit-linear-gradient(top, #FF6633, #FF6633)',
'background-image': '-moz-linear-gradient(top, #FF6633, #FF6633)',
'background-image': '-ms-linear-gradient(top, #FF6633, #FF6633)',
'background-image': '-o-linear-gradient(top, #4ba614, #FF6633)',
'background-image': 'linear-gradient(to bottom, #FF6633, #FF6633)',
'background-color': '#FF6633',
'background': '#FF6633'
});

Open in new window


and background doesn't become from:
'background': '#336ea9'
to:
'background': '#FF6633'

Why?

Regards.

It's because your CSS is styling the .aui-button-primary element and your jQuery is applying the style to it's parent (.aui-buttons). You need to apply the jQuery CSS to the same child:

$('.aui-buttons .aui-button-primary').css({
   ...
}
