Method Detail

getTheme

Theme getTheme(String themeName)
Return the Theme instance for the given theme name.

The returned Theme will resolve theme-specific messages, codes, file paths, etc (e.g. CSS and image files in a web environment).

Parameters:
themeName - the name of the theme
Returns:
the corresponding Theme, or null if none defined. Note that, by convention, a ThemeSource should at least be able to return a default Theme for the default theme name "theme" but may also return default Themes for other theme names.
