Can a widget be used to change sheet title background color?

Hi,

I need to specify each sheet title background color based on the sheet's usage "context"; i.e. the most important sheets would have red title backgrounds, less critical sheets might be green, etc.  Once set, colors don't have to change. 

I'm sure this can be done with an extension object, but that seems like overkill for what I'm trying to accomplish.

Can this be done with a simple widget? Seems to me like 1-2 lines of javascript and/or css could do the trick. 

EX: $("div.sheet-title-container").attribute("background-color","#990000") 

Is this possible or just wishful thinking?

Loading time for widget & extension will almost be the same.

so if you make a small extension to do the specific task to only change the title style there will be no impact in performance.

Qlik Sense Styler lite from branch is a good option to get additional options.

or can use below extension developed by me.

THanks Ajay,

That does the job. I was thinking of widget as being less development time, but now I don't have to do any development time thanks to you. 🙂
