There is a possibility to make changes in the look and feel of a list. For this you need to take the following steps:

  • add a new CSS class(es) with desired settings in the <style> section of your HTML page or in your file with styles (don't forget to include your file on the page in this case):
<style>    .my-first-class {        /*some styles*/    }        .my-second-class {        /*some styles*/    }</style>
  • specify the name of the created CSS class (or names of classes separated by spaces) as the value of the css property in the List configuration:
var list = new dhx.List({     css:"my-first-class my-second-class"});

Styling items#

You can style particular cells in the list.

For example, apply some color to each even item, as in:

var list = new dhx.List("list");; (item, i) {    if (!(i % 2)) {, {css: "bg-gray"})    }})
<style>    .bg-gray {        background: #faf9f9;    }</style>

Adding custom selection#

It is also possible to customize selection of an item.

<style>  .custom-class {    padding: 20px;  }  .custom-class.dhx_list-item--selected {    background-color: rgba(2, 136, 209, 0.3);    box-shadow: inset 2px 0 0 0 rgb(2, 136, 209),      inset -2px 0 0 0 #0288d1,      inset 0 -2px 0 0 #0288d1,      inset 0 2px 0 0 #0288d1;  }</style>
var list = new dhx.List("list");; (item, i) {, {css: "custom-class"})});
