6.2: SimpleXML form ignores stylesheet attribute

I'm having trouble getting a stylesheet reference to work in an app SimpleXml form.

I've read the changes in 6.2, it seems like this should be supported.

http://answers.splunk.com/answers/171586/to-what-extent-we-can-customize-app-if-application.html

I have a css file in the proper location, and have tried dashboard.css and summary-dashboards.css. In the form itself I reference it as specified in the schema:

<form stylesheet="summary-dashboards.css">

The resulting page header doesn't include any custom stylesheets at all.

What's the trick?

As discussed on #splunk:

Make sure you don't have a conflicting copy of the view in /local if you are editing in /default -- /local will win!

Also, did you restart splunk/spluknweb after adding the CSS file to your app?

To further help debugging, point your browser at http://splunkhost:8000/static/app/app_name/summary-dashboards.css - that'll show if the issue is the form linking to the CSS or Splunk even seeing the CSS.

Does devtools in IE, firebug, or dev tools in chrome show any errors on the consoles?

Usually it will be something wrong with the permissions on the file, location of the file, etc. etc. If you're getting any errors while debugging in your favorite debug tools, please update your question with the errors.
