StyleBooks grammar

You can design your own StyleBooks, import them to NetScaler Console, and then use them to create configurations either by using NetScaler Console GUI or by using APIs. To be able to create your own StyleBooks, you must first understand the grammar and syntax of the different constructs and attributes you can use.

This document describes the different constructs and references you can use while creating StyleBooks.
